There are only two ingredients, so use THE BEST quality you can buy. You can order Madagascar Vanilla Beans online, and buy a nice grade extra smooth Vodka.
What you’ll need:
Vanilla Beans – 3 per jar
good quality Vodka
small jars w/tight fitting lids- I used 4oz Mason Jars
What to do:
1. For each 4 ounce jar of vanilla extract you would like to make: Slice three vanilla beans down the center careful not to cut through them so that they will release their seeds. Place all 3 vanilla beans into each jar & then fill each jar with Vodka. Don’t quite fill to the top.
2. Place the lids on tightly. Store jars in a dark & cool place. Give the jars a good shake once a week. Vanilla extract will be ready to use in approximately 8 weeks.
