Homemade Vanilla Extract Recipe
It's easy to make your own vanilla extract from scratch. All you need are vanilla beans and the liquor of your choice!
Fall, Spring, Summer, Winter
Bourbon, Rum, Vanilla Bean, Vodka
Dairy-free, Gluten-free, Vegan, Vegetarian
liquor (vodka, rum, bourbon)
Using a pairing knife, split half of the beans.
Place the beans in a sterilized jar and cover with liquor.
Put the lid on the jar tightly and give it a good shake every day for the first week.
Place the jars in a cool, dark cabinet for at least 6 months. Try to give them a shake once a month to redistribute oils.
Strain vanilla extract into small, sterilized bottles if desired.
Once you've used your vanilla extract, split the remaining beans and add more liquor for another soak!
Don't throw out your spent beans! Add them to ice creams, puddings, syrups and sauces during the cooking process for extra flavor!
