Homemade Vanilla Extract Kit
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! The included 1 ounce of gourmet vanilla beans are some of the best beans available in the world along with beans grown specifically for extract use and will help you create a delicious vanilla single fold extract of your very own in 4 easy steps!
Step1 - Split the 8 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 whip 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!!
