How to Make Vanilla Extract
Making your own vanilla extract is super simple, all you need is two ingredients!
- 10 - 12 vanilla beans
- 600 ml vodka
Slice the vanilla beans lengthways so that you can see the vanilla inside.
Place the split vanilla beans into a glass jar/bottle and add the vodka.
Pop the lid on and give the bottle/jar a gentle shake.
Store the bottle/jar of vanilla extract in a dark place and give it a gentle shake once a week.
You can use your homemade vanilla extract after one month, but I prefer to leave it for two months if possible.
