Homemade Vanilla Extract
Making your own homemade vanilla extract is the best way to make premium vanilla extract with the purest ingredients and is a fraction of the cost.
- 1/3 cup vodka or alcohol of choice
- 1 vanilla bean
Add 1/3 cup vodka to the glass bottle.
Cut the vanilla bean into 4 sections.
Add the vanilla bean to the vodka, making sure the bean is completely submerged in the alcohol.
Allow the flavors to develop for at least 2 months before using, but 4-6 months is best.
You can often find little glass bottles for storage at your local craft stores.
Store in a cool, dry, and dark location.
