I've been excited to share this post with you, but had to be patient for reasons you'll know soon enough. I bring you Homemade Vanilla Extract!
Yes, it's true. You can make yourself a whole jug of vanilla in your kitchen, and here's how:
2 cups vodka
I saved the vanilla bean pods from my white chocolate candies, and decided to put them to use. Place the sliced vanilla bean pods in the bottle, and fill with vodka all the way to the top.
Let the bottle sit at room temperature for at 4-8 weeks, and you've got yourself vanilla extract ready for baking!
The quality of the alcohol is up to you - I used Boomerang vodka from Trader Joe's. I grabbed the vanilla bean pods from Whole Foods, but I'm told you can get a really good deal on them from World Market.
