How To Make Homemade Vanilla Extract

Homemade Vanilla Extract is easy to make and is a one of a kind gift from the kitchen that is perfect for homemakers, bakers, and family who seem to have everything.

I’ve included free printable homemade vanilla labels with this homemade vanilla recipe.


Scale

Ingredients

  • Vodka (best you can afford) (4 cups per quart jar)
  • 5 whole Vanilla Beans ┬áper cup of Vodka=20 vanilla beans per quart jar
  • 1– quart size mason jar or other decorative jar

Instructions

  1. Measure Vodka into jars. You’ll need 4 cups of Vodka per quart jar.
  2. Add 5 split Vanilla Beans per cup of Vodka. (20 Split Vanilla Beans per quart jar makes the best vanilla extract. You could use less but the vanilla will be weaker.)
  3. Steep or cure for at least 6 weeks before using.
  4. For gift giving you can add 1 vanilla bean to each 4 oz Boston Round Bottle

Notes

1 quart jar of Vodka and vanilla beans will yield 32 ounces of homemade vanilla extract. 32 ounces of vanilla extract will yield eight 4 oz bottles for gifting.

Don’t waste the beans after curing. Rinse off well and add to a jar of sugar to make homemade vanilla sugar.

You can also grind dried out vanilla beans into a powder and add to sugar.
