One thing every baker uses a lot of is vanilla extract. We had NO IDEA how easy it is to make your own vanilla until we tried this recipe. It is perfect for a holiday gift too!

Homemade Vanilla Extract


  • 6 vanilla beans
  • 2 cups vodka


Leaving one inch of the vanilla bean untouched at a single end, slice the bean in half using a small, sharp knife. Place beans into a jar or bottle and completely cover then with vodka. Store for 60 days before use. Shake often to redistribute the vanilla flavor as it will naturally settle at the bottom.

I would have never guessed vodka.  I'll have to look at the label now to see what commercial manufacturer's use.
