Homemade Vanilla Extract
You can make as much as you like. But the ratio is 5 beans per 1 cup of vodka. Measure vodka into jar(s). Add 5 split vanilla beans per cup of vodka. Seal the jar and set it into your pantry and allow it to steep or cure for at least 6 weeks before using.
After curing bottle it in 4 ounce brown Boston round bottle or a similar type bottle.
When the extract gets low you may pour more vodka in to keep the bottle going.
Don’t waste the beans after curing. Rinse them off well and add them to a jar of sugar to make vanilla sugar. You can also grind dried vanilla beans into a powder and add to sugar to make vanilla sugar.
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!
Heather is a Texas native and the blogger behind Heather's Dish. She's mom to Weston, wife to Nate, and they live in Little Rock, Arkansas with their two "stubborn and saucy" dogs Bunker and Keira. In her blog, she shares her photographs, random musings (serious and silly alike), and all kinds of scrumptious recipes---and not just evil variations of her favorite mac and cheese. Her enviable TK recipe box is a testament to that. Go see for yourself!
