Vanilla Extract from Scratch
Making your own Vanilla Extract from Scratch is cheaper and easier than you think!
- 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.
