Homemade Vanilla Extract
Homemade vanilla extract requires only two ingredients and makes all of your baked goods taste amazing. Learn how to make vanilla extract with this easy tutorial.
- 3 vanilla beans
- 1 cup vodka 80 proof or alcohol of choice
Use a sharp knife or scissors to cut the vanilla beans in half lengthwise.
Place the vanilla beans in a clean jar.
Pour the vodka into the jar and shake.
Cover, label, and place the jar in a dark, cool location for at least 2 months.
