Good-quality vanilla is the ultimate must have for passionate bakers. This homemade version intensifies in flavour over time, so the longer it sits, the better. I just made this, so the color is not yet developed but within a week you will notice a change. This is so easy to make that you will wonder why you didn’t start making your extracts sooner.This recipe calls for two key ingredients -vanilla bean and vodka,(and with a little patience) because the final product will not be ready for at least six weeks. Recipe is below.
