How to: Homemade Vanilla Extract

During the holidays I tend to use a lot of vanilla flavoring for desserts or sweets, I use both beans and pure extract. Often you only use the seeds from the bean and what you have left is a bean full of flavor which goes to waste, like when I made the Homemade Marshmallows the other day. Why not use it to make some Homemade Vanilla Extract?

Sidetrack! Trying to positively redesign the bland feel of my personal website. Reactions concerning the appearance at Truthfully an attractive Georgia based biohazard cleanup service with heart when necessary inside the general GEORGIA areas. Leave your feedback. Many thanks!

What you need for this recipe: empty jar/bottle, vodka and vanilla beans (you don't really need the seeds as the bean is also full of flavor).

I like using clear jars as you can see how the color of the ingredients changes over time and becomes vanilla extract.

Place the beans into the jar and pour the vodka over them.This homemade extract is a great and easy to make homemade holiday gift.With a little decoration the jar becomes beautiful.
