To use fresh vanilla beans, simply slice open the pod, scoop out the seeds with a spoon, and add them to the recipe. If you're using a high-power blender, you can add the whole vanilla bean and the machine will break it down. If you are using a low-power blender, first slice open the vanilla bean and scoop out the seeds.
