Homemade Vanilla Extract
Total TimePrep: 5 min. + standing
I just started making my own vanilla. I’m on a Facebook group that has helped with all my questions and you can get great deals on vanilla beans in their Co-Op. I am only a member but I really like the group. They suggest one oz beans to 8 oz of spirits https://www.vanillapura.com/pages/vanilla-bean-co-op-group-orders?goal=0_52662445cc-9d350ad189-357322856&mc_cid=9d350ad189&mc_eid=fc5c91071d I hope this works
I've been trying to find vanilla beans for quite awhile now. I guess you have to go online to get them & the expense is horrid! Where is the best place to order them from? Does anyone know who I should order them from?
I have been making this same recipe for years. It is so good and easy to make.
So much better than anything you could buy.
I do this every year for Christmas gifts, but I did find that you have to cut the beans in order to get the full flavor. What a difference in what you buy in the story. Even "Real" vanilla is watered down.
I leave mine set in a cool dark place for six months :)
