I do so much backing anymore that I feel like I go though a bottle of Vanilla Extract every month. And Pure Vanilla Extract is not cheap. The other day I came across this post on Homemade Vanilla Extract, I was so excited that I hurried and placed my order on Amazon. Today I started my first batch of Homemade Vanilla Extract! I can’t wait until it’s ready! It takes about 6 months to be ready, so I’m starting now for Christmas. I might even use some of gifts! One site I read said that it can be ready in about 4 weeks, but the longer you let it set the better it gets!
If you read the ingredients on your bottle of vanilla extract, you’ll see that many brands decided vanilla extract needs to be watered down and have sugar or high fructose corn syrup in it. The only things that should be in it are vanilla beans and alcohol? So why not make your own and save a little while your at it!
