I make my own vanilla.
Many people ask me how to make vanilla, so I thought I’d show and tell.
It is so simple and easy. Takes all of 1-2 minutes.
First you need to make sure that you have all your ingredients. 1 quart blue ball canning jar, 2 vanilla beans and (don’t look ma) Vodka or Rum. Vodka is what I have on hand at the moment.
Slit your beans, but not all the way through.
Drop them in your jar.
I put my home made vanilla in my blue ball jars. Why? I have no clue. I just like the way they look. They look antiquey, and old fashioned, and it makes me feel old fashioned and antiquey, and kind of pioneery.
Fill ‘er up.
Put this jar in a dark cabinet for 6 weeks to forever. The longer it steeps, the better the flavor. I always have 2 jars going. That way, the new jar is steeping while we are using the old stuff, the good stuff, the antiquey, pioneery, old fashioned that is way better than store bought stuff.
Why is the Rum always gone?
