Vanilla Extract

Homemade Vanilla Extract

Homemade vanilla extract makes the perfect hostess gift for someone who loves to bake. It needs to sit for a minimum of 5 weeks before it's ready to be used, so best to plan ahead.

The recipe I use is from Zoe Francois of Zoe says the longer it sits the better it gets! She recommends making batches in June to give as hostess gifts in December.

You'll need the following items:

Glass Bottle with a stopper or cap

A 750ml bottle of vodka (no need to invest in a top shelf vodka for this as you want the vanilla beans to infuse the vodka and give it their flavor)

Vanilla Beans
