For Christmas I gave friends and neighbors homemade vanilla extract. It was super easy and fun to make. In fact, the hardest part about the whole thing was starting 8 weeks before Christmas!
I got most of my information from this post on Design Mom. I did a lot of looking on the internet before I started, but to be honest they were all pretty much the same- put split vanilla beans in vodka and let sit for eight weeks. I ordered all of the vanilla beans from Amazon and they were a great value, especially when you compare to what you would spend at the grocery store for just a few! They made the extract a rich, beautiful color!
