Vanilla Extract

Vanilla Extract

  • 1 bottle Bourbon (or alcohol of your choice…I recommend Vodka as well)
  • 6 vanilla beans

Cut and scrape the vanilla beans into the bourbon bottle.

Cut up the bean pods into small pieces and add those as well.

Shake the bottle daily.

Store in a cool dark place for 6-8 weeks.

As you use the vanilla extract, refill with more bourbon and add vanilla beans.

This will keep for years.
