Homemade Vanilla Extract
Servings: 25 ounces vanilla extract
- 750 mL bottle vodka
- 9 vanilla bean pods
If brewing for 4-ounce bottled gifts:
Slice each vanilla pod in half vertically and horizontally. Place 1 1/2 pods (6 sliced segments) in each 4-ounce bottle. Fill each bottle with vodka, replace lid tightly and let steep for 12 weeks. If giving away before the 12 weeks is up, include a tag with the bottle that states the "Ready for Use By" date.
