Have you seen the price of vanilla extract lately? Especially organic vanilla extract. A whopping $20 for 8 ounces at my local health food store. Considering all the baking I’ve been doing lately, I knew I had to find a way make my own vanilla extract.
Note: This is one of the posts that got nuked when I moved my blog after I got deplatformed – I will be updating this recipe eventually. Thanks for your patience.
Turns out making vanilla extract is incredibly easy. And you’re going to save a lot of money. You can find vanilla beans for less than $1 each if you buy in bulk. Add a little cheap booze, let it sit for a couple of months, and you’re in business. Start now, and you’ll be sitting pretty come holiday baking time.
