Homemade Vanilla Extract

With my daughter’s allergy to corn and my efforts to avoid preservatives and unknown ingredients, we have ventured out on a new adventure.  Making my own Vanilla. (I make everything else, it seems, why not give it a try.)

Here is what I have done.  I have chosen the smoothest Vodka I could find, Organic Froggy B Vodka.  Purchased an organic vanilla bean from the health food store.  Washed out an empty Maple Syrup flask.

Put it all together and wait 4-6 months and there you have it. Organic, homemade vanilla extract.  Here are some photos for you to see our progress.
