Homemade Vanilla Extract
By Paula DeenJUMP TO RECIPE
- 3 split in half with the ends still attached vanilla beans
- 1 with tight-fitting lid jar
- 1 cup good quality vodka
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 the beans. 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.
