Homemade Vanilla Extract - 3 Months Later
This is my vanilla extract after three months. Although it was already this dark after just two months, I just never got around to taking a picture. :lazy: I've used it several times and it's amazing!
Pure vanilla extract is ridiculously expensive and often times hard to come by in Scandinavia, so I decided to have a go at making my own.
Here's what you need:
6 vanilla pods/beans
500 ml/2 cups vodka
Put the bottle in a dark cupboard and let sit for a minimum of 8 weeks. It will get darker and the flavor will become stronger the longer you allow it to sit.
