Servings: 1 jar
Prep Time: 8 weeks
3 vanilla beans, split in half with the ends still attached
1 cup quality vodka
glass jar with tight fitting lid
In a small saucepan over medium flame, heat vodka. Place split vanilla beans in a jar with a tight fitting lid and pour heated vodka over to cover. Allow to cool completely before putting the lid on. Screw on lid and store in a dark cool place for 8 weeks (give jar a shake every week). Mixture will get darker and darker over time.
Paula’s Gift Packaging Tip: I like to gift my Homemade Vanilla Extract in the same jars I made them in. I tie a string of twine around the lid and add a feather for decoration.
