Use or toss this used vanilla bean?

Pei | Jul 3, 2006 07:14 AM

I steeped a vanilla bean (seeds scraped out) in milk for ice cream (will report back on the entire dessert, to be constructed tomorrow night).

Can I used this bean? I rinsed it off with water, being careful to get rid of all the milk clinging to it. It's drying on the counter now. Would it be okay to bury it in sugar to make vanilla sugar, or is it time for this bean to go into the trash?
