Learning how to make your own homemade vanilla extract could not be more simple and easy.
All you will need is the following:
♥ 3 vanilla beans
♥ 1 cup of vodka
♥ Glass jar with a tight fitting lid (I like the swing top bottles)
Using a kitchen scissors cut the beans in half the long way leaving a half an inch still whole at one end so as to keep the beans together.
Pour the cup of vodka over the beans 100% covering the beans. Close the jar tightly and store in a cool dark place for 2 months or longer. Remember to shake the jar from time to time.
This will last for a long time and you can add more vodka to top it off.
There you have it… It is that easy…
