Making your own vanilla adds a special personal touch. I like to give this as gifts . I usually start making big batches in October to be ready for the holidays.
Great for most baked goods,drinks,sauces,etc.
I remember when I was little my mother used to make warm milk with a bit of brown sugar and vanilla. So good!
