Vanilla Extract


Homemade Vanilla Extract

I have had this jar for years. I just keep adding vanilla beans and in this one bourbon however vodka can be used as well. With patience you will have the best vanilla that money can by and you made it yourself. Save those split vanilla beans you have used in recipes, rinse off and place in the jar of your home brew.

Vanilla beans

Vodka or bourbon

Place whole vanilla beans in a jar and pour in the alcohol,seal. Set aside in a dark place for at least 8 weeks and it’s ready to use. The longer you leave it and feed it the better it gets. Continue to add beans and alcohol as needed. Don’t forget to save, rinse and add back the split beans from recipes to your vanilla extract as well.
