Q: I just got a great deal on 1/2 pound of vanilla beans! Now that this culinary loveliness is headed my way, what is the best way to store them? Sent by Amy Editor: Amy, it's important to store vanilla beans in an airtight container; you want to keep them from getting dried out. I usually store mine in sealed plastic bags or, if I have a big bunch of them at once, a tightly closed glass jar. Readers, any tips on storing vanilla beans?
