Make Your Own Vanilla Extract

finished bottles

Now is the perfect time to start a batch of your own vanilla extract. It takes 8 weeks to be ready to use. If you get going now your vanilla will be ready in time to use for Christmas. Even if you don’t get your vanilla started on time, you can make a little tag letting the receiver know when their extract will be ready for use. Each of these 4oz jars contains 1 vanilla bean each. As long as the vanilla bean is in the bottle, it can be topped off with additional Vodka. Talk about the gift that keeps on giving! Go HERE for the tutorial.

I am feeling silly.....

Is anyone else laughing because we have just inspired many of our readers to go by alcohol?

P.S. I can't remember if I mentioned this in my tut but if you take the beans out after 2 weeks you have vanilla vodka for mixing drinks. ;)
