This is going to be a very quick post about what I just did. I’ve been wanting to make homemade vanilla for at least a year or more and just haven’t gotten around to it.
I’ve had one vanilla bean sitting in my cabinet waiting to become something new. A few months ago, I finally got husband to get a bottle of vodka for this purpose. I have a few quiet moments. And at the perfect time, I remembered all of this. So… finally all of the key elements are in synchronicity.
Here it is:
1 Vanilla Bean
4 oz of Vodka
1 small glass jar
Put the vanilla bean in the jar. Add the vodka. Let it sit for 8 weeks.
Write the date on it so you don’t forget.
Then when it is half-used, fill it up with Vodka again to stretch it. Four ounces of vanilla is alot! How wonderful not to have to buy those tiny bottles again for a ridiculous price.
So…have any of you done this yet? I’d love to hear how it went.
God Bless and Have a Merry Christmas!
