A lovely gift for the foodie and baker! Create your very own homemade gourmet Vanilla Extract! Just add premium vodka to this 16 oz. bottle filled with Grade A vanilla beans. Vanilla is widely used for its flavor in baked goods and for its fragrance in soaps, lotions and candles. Its medicinal properties reduce stress and promote calmness and it is thought to be an aphrodisiac. 16 oz bottle.
Instructions: Fill bottle with premium vodka (Recommendations: 80 proof is best, such as Belvedere or Grey Goose Vodka), seal tightly and store in a cool, dark place for 2-4 months. Use as you would any vanilla extract. Then, refill bottle and start the process over. Reuse vanilla beans for many years. You will be able to tell when the vanilla isn’t getting as strong as before, when it may take a lot longer for the vanilla to get to the right strength.
