homemade vanilla extract recipe... The difference between homemade extract and store bought is really noticeable in baked goods. Pinner says "this recipe is a good one!"
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.
Homemade Vanilla Extract: Awesome! $26.25= 1 DIY Liter of Extract – 5 Vanilla Beans: $8.25 – 1 large jar: Free -steal your Dad’s bourbon jar! – 1 liter bottle vodka (4 times distilled or more): $18 – Time: Free 1 liter of Vanilla Extract will cost only $26.25! Which equals $1.64 per 2 ounces…and when it is compared to $8 per 2 oz at the store, it’s a freakin’ steal!
