Make Your Own Vanilla Extract: Update

It's been nearly three months since I started my made-at-home vanilla extract, and I think it's about as done as it can get. Check out the vanilla extract tutorial I wrote for instructions on how to make some for yourself!

Before:

After:


I'm looking forward to using this in all my baked goods from now on. It was so easy, I can't imagine ever buying vanilla extract again. All it takes is a little advanced planning (that is, if you do a lot of baking and plan on running out of vanilla extract on a regular basis).

  2. If you keep it topped up as you pour the vanilla out, you can keep it going for a good length of time, too. I've had a small jar of vanilla extract that I've been adding vodka to for over 2 years, and it is just getting too weak now.

  3. @Seonaid: That's great to know. I had read that somewhere else but wasn't sure if it would really work that well. I will definitely be using that technique!

  4. This would be a cool gift for family and friends that like to bake! I would really like to "hear" how it goes when you try it, too! (Bake something right now, Amy!) ;-)
