Homemade extracts are in and store bought extracts are out! I am just tired of paying so much for extracts, a small bottle of Pure Vanilla Extract is $10 or more. If your like me most of my baking calls for at least one type of extract like Almond extract, Lemon Extract, Mint Extract, Orange Extract (the list goes on). Now that the holidays are coming I will be using up at least 90% of the extracts I have in my pantry. So I decided I will make my own homemade extracts. I will be posting a variety of extracts. I will begin with the most famous and most used ..Vanilla Extract.
