Homemade Vanilla Extract

Not sure about you, but I can’t find pure vanilla extract anywhere! And last week I bought vanilya aroma, but it tasted so bitter my husband was convinced it wasn’t for eating but rather for some sort of aromatherapy purpose! Then it hit me! I recall seeing sometime long, long ago instructions on how to make homemade vanilla extract! I surfed the web, and sure enough it’s quite easy to get your hands on. Not only will you have delicious vanilla extract at the end of this process, but you might possibly have a great gift for the upcoming holiday season.

Now, the big question is where to get the vanilla beans? But, once you have those you are home free.

You can read about how to make your own here or here. Let me know how it turns out for you!
