Homemade Vanilla ExtractPhillip
Three packages Bolner’s Fiesta Brand® Whole Vanilla Bean
750mL Vodka of choice
Perfect for gift giving! Carefully slice open the vanilla beans lengthwise. Scrape the seeds from the inside of the bean and place the seeds inside the vodka bottle. When finished, place scraped beans inside bottle. Shake and let sit for 4-6 months.
To increase the speed of steeping, you can cut the scraped beans in smaller pieces, slightly heat the vodka, or place by a sunny window. Give your bottle a shake every few days until you are happy with the strength of your vanilla.
Pour into smaller glass jars to make the perfect holiday gift!
