Homemade Vanilla

I LOVE to bake.  I also LOVE quality ingredients.  Let me just say that I am a bit of a vanilla extract snob.  I hate the store bought cheap stuff.  Compared to the stuff I make, it has a crappy flavor.  How can you make homemade vanilla?  It’s super easy.

What you need:

4-7 vanilla beans


A glass bottle

Yep, that’s it!  Two whole ingredients.  All you need to do is slice down the sides of the vanilla beans, stuff them inside the glass jar, and fill with vodka.  Just put the lid/stopper on the bottle and wait about 3+ months.


Mine has been waiting about 6 months.  It is delicious!!  I highly recommend making some yourself if you’re into baking and wonderful flavors!
