How To Make Vanilla Extract

We’ve wanted to make this vanilla extract for a long time, in fact, the vanilla beans have been sitting in the pantry for a really long time now… Whoops! Anyway, we finally got around to doing it! We never seemed to have vodka in the house to make it so we never thought about it until we needed it.

This is so easy, and fun- that we thought that we would teach you how to make vanilla extract for your own holiday cooking. You need to do this a few weeks before you will need it so it can steep in the vanilla beans and really get the full flavor of the beans.

Slice beans down the center leaving about an inch of room on either end, cut in half and insert into the jar. Fill the jar with vodka leaving an inch of two from the top.

Screw on the lid and sit someplace dark and cool for a minimum of 4 weeks (the longer you wait the better it will be). Shake a couple times a week. Yep, it’s that easy and so much cheaper than buying it, especially when you use it as much as we do.
