Perfect gift or favor: Easy homemade vanilla extract. Place 2 or 3 vanilla beans in a bottle and cover with vodka. Let sit for 2-3 months (or more) and you've got the most amazing homemade vanilla extract. PLUS: you never have to replace it! - just top off with fresh vodka when 1/3 of it is used and you're good to go!
DIY Vanilla Extract! While in the kitchen, my friend was telling me how he hates using vanilla extract because it gets expensive and just a few moments after that, I measure about a tablespoon of vanilla extract and manage to spill some precious supply on his kitchen counter :( I felt so bad!! But we laughed about and now we may just have to try to make this! haha
Homemade Vanilla Extract!! Wish I would have known this 3 months ago for Christmas Baking! Trying it with Absolut and Whole Foods vanilla beans!
Vanilla Extract: 5 vanilla beans per 8 ounces of 70 proof alcohol.Any type of alcohol can be used, but bottom shelf vodka is most common because it will not add any additional flavors to the extract. Bourbon, rum and brandy can also be used. After 8 short weeks the extract is ready to enjoy.
