Homemade Gift: Vanilla Extract

Vanilla Extract

Vanilla Beans – 3 per jar
High quality Vodka
Small jars w/tight fitting lids-  i.e: 4 oz Mason Jars
1. For each 4 ounce jar of vanilla extract you would like to make: Slice three vanilla beans down the center careful not to cut through them so that they will release their seeds. Place all 3 vanilla beans into each jar & then fill each jar with Vodka. Don’t quite fill to the top.

2. Place the lids on tightly. Store jars in a dark & cool place. Give the jars a good shake once a week. Vanilla extract will be ready to use in approximately 8 weeks.

Beans may be ordered via Amazon:
Madagascar Vanilla Beans
