“Homemade vanilla extract! What could be better and cheaper?”

I just love making my own vanilla, it gives everything a much better flavor and more of a homemade feel.


10 vanilla beans, split lengthwise

1 liter vodka


Place the vanilla beans in the bottle of vodka and seal. Store in a cool, dark area such as a kitchen cabinet for 3 weeks, shaking the bottle every week. Three weeks is the minimum, store it 6 months for the best flavor.

After using, replace with more vodka. The same beans will continue to flavor the vanilla for up to a year.
