Home Made Vanilla Extract Recipe!

I love making my own Vanilla Extract and thanks to Bountiful Baskets I recently received lots of great vanilla beans to make enough Vanilla to last me at least a year!! Would you like to learn how to make your own home made vanilla extract? Well with this vanilla extract recipe it is simple and easy!

Vanilla Beans (about 8)
750 ml Vodka

First you will want to slice your vanilla beans down the side so that the soft insides will be able to mix into the vodka.

After you slit the sides of the vanilla beans you will need to place the vanilla beans inside the 750ml bottle of vodka.

Once the vanilla beans are inside the bottle of Vodka you will need to shake the bottle around to help the vanilla mix with the vodka.

After you give your bottle a good shake place it in a cupboard and only take out every few days to give it a good shake to break up the pulp.

After about a week you will start to see some color changes in the clear vodka….It takes about 5 weeks to get good vanilla so be patient! Just shake your bottle once a week or so and you will be good to go after about 5 weeks!

That’s it! It really is that simple to make your own home made vanilla extract!
