  After using the tiny seeds from the vanilla bean, cut up the bean and put it in a container with sugar.  The sugar soaks up the oil and transforms into Vanillezucker.

Ode To Kluntje

33,5 x 18,5 cm
I came to Europe in my high school days, and saw marzipan for the first time.  When I moved here later, and wanted to take something special back to my children and grandchildren, I thought marzipan would be a good idea.  For me it was a treat, as well as a way to share my earlier trip.  No one liked it. 
However, they discovered the stash of Kluntje I had taken with me for my tea.  Big sugar crystals.  Big hit.  So now I take boxes of it every time I go.  I don't know if Kluntje is the best thing about Ostfriesland, but it's one of the wonderful things about Ostfriesland.
