Ingredients

How to Make Make Your Own Vanilla Extract

Step-by-Step

  1. 1 Use kitchen scissors or a sharp paring knife to cut lengthwise down each vanilla bean, splitting them in half, leaving an inch at the end connected.

    2 Put vanilla beans in the actual bottle of Vodka. You may have to remove about a 1/2 of the vodka in order to get the beans to fit. Then top the bottle off with the extra vodka before sealing it up.
    3 Give the bottle a good shake every once in a while. Store in a dark, cool place for 6 weeks to 6 months.

    Lasts for years. You can keep topping it off with vodka once in a while as you use it, just remember to give it a good shake.
    You can also make vanilla sugar by putting a split vanilla bean into a jar of white, granulated sugar. Great way to infuse the sugar with vanilla flavor for baking.
  2. Purchasing beans can be done over the internet.. I will supply you with websites. See below for links/you may hve to copy and paste the addresses to yoru browser window..
