Homemade Vanilla Extract Kit with 1 oz of Organic Madagascar Grade A Vanilla Beans

As any serious baker will tell you, pure, real, homemade vanilla extract can be the difference between a normal cookie and an award-winning confection! It is so much better that you probably think it must be difficult, expensive and time consuming to make. The reality is, it takes less of your time and effort to make real vanilla extract than it does to bake the cookies you add it to, and the cost is comparable or less than just buying vanilla extract.

 We provide you the kit to make your very own vanilla extract and you just have to add your favorite alcohol! Included in the kit is an 8.5 oz glass jar with swing top lid, label to mark details of the extract, and an ounce of our best selling Madagascar Grade A vanilla beans. The beans included are some of the best in the world, and are grown especially for extract use. They will help you create a delicious vanilla single fold extract of your very own in 4 easy steps!

Step1 - Split the included beans the long way then cut them into smaller pieces and place inside of the included jar.

Step 2 - Completely submerge your beans by adding 8 oz of your favorite vodka, rum, bourbon, or brandy.

Step 3 - Give your new, delicious concoction a shake 1 - 2 times a week.

Step 4 - Try not to run out of patience. It takes about 6 months to 1 year for the vanilla beans to magically turn the alcohol into pure, homemade vanilla extract. After 6 months is up, you can test your extract by adding it to a bit of whipped cream to taste the potency. The vanilla beans can be removed, but if you leave the vanilla beans in the bottle, the rich flavor will continue to evolve like wine does. 

Store your vanilla extract out of direct sunlight and at room temperature and it will last literally forever, if you don’t use it up!!

This kit is sold with 1 ounce of vanilla beans which can be anywhere from 6-10 beans as beans can vary in size.

I ordered the 6 kit and a extra pound of beans

Tammy H. (Nahunta, GA, US)
First Timer

It wasn't what I expected. It says "kit", therefore I was expecting more than the bottle and the beans. The instructions weren't clear. They should have more details; with the type of alcohol that should be used or at least recommendations, also on how to cut the beans.

The beans smelled amazing.

Hi Tammy! One of the creative aspects of making vanilla extracts is deciding exactly which liquor to use. Folks typically use vodka, but also enjoy extracts made with whiskey or bourbon, or even tequila! The key is to stick around 70-80 proof. The label says the beans should be split lengthwise and fully submerged in alcohol (cut into halves or thirds if necessary). After that, just shake once a week for 6 months, and you'll have a perfecly delicious vanilla extract. There's a bunch of information in the Blog section of our website as well if you'd like further details about the process. Thanks for your support!

Awaiting the results

Psyched to have my own homemade extract. Five months from now.

Great Quality Item

Bought this for my wife on Mothers day, she couldn't have been more excited. The beans and bottles seem a great quality. We will know more in about 6 months to a year hahaha! But, thats why I got the 6 pack, we can just fill one every few months and have a nice ongoing never ending cycle of Vanilla! Here is to 1 less, overly processed, store purchase going forward!

So easy

First time making extract. I got the kit and followed the instructions. Now I just wait. Highly recommend the kit to "newbies" and will definitely recommend.

Second time I’ve purchased.

Bought a one bottle kit. Worked out so well, I bought a six pack and have made vanilla for Christmas gifts this year.

Don S. (Cleveland, OH, US)
Beans and Bourbon

Got my beans, gave them a quick slice, threw them in the jar and added bourbon. I think that was two weeks ago, looks great already. Can't wait to try it out.


Can't wait till my vanilla is ready to use and try it
