Vanilla Extract from Scratch

Making your own Vanilla Extract from Scratch is cheaper and easier than you think!
Author Tracy


  • 1 cup of vodka
  • 3-5 vanilla beans


  • Slice open vanilla beans lengthwise (or cut into pieces to fit in jar) and place in jar. Pour vodka in over beans, cover, and let sit for at least 6 weeks. Give it a little shake every once in awhile.
  • Strain if you prefer, or leave pods and beans in jar to continue infusing.
