When removing seeds from a vanilla pod, run a sharp knife vertically down the centre of the vanilla pod, scraping out the seeds. If you do this on a sheet of baking paper, this will prevent your seeds from sticking to surfaces, ensuring that you get the full benefit from your pod. With the remaining pod, you can place in a jar of caster sugar for a few months to create vanilla sugar or alternatively, place under the back seat or passenger door of your car for a delicious natural car air freshener.
