My adventure in making homemade vanilla extract...
I used 80 proof Vodka
My husband order these vanilla beans off amazon from www.vanillaproductsusa.com.
Half a pound for about $24.00 wasn't too bad of a price in my opinion! If anyone knows another source that you like & is great price, please comment below!
I used quart size mason jars.
You can chop the vanilla beans into 1/2 inch pieces or in half. Slicing is okay but Ive heard it's waste of time according to this company's vanilla beans interactions, but I like to slice mine.
Now I just have to wait 2 months and I will have tons of vanilla to bake with!
