Homemade Vanilla Extract

Yes, you do see a pattern here with these recent blog posts! It’s been so fun for me to try making things that before I thought you could only buy from a container at the grocery store. 🙂 Here’s a few shots of the “finished” product (although I’m waiting a few months for it to cure) and here’s the recipe I followed. I did stick to it (surprise, surprise!) besides doubling the recipe. I used vodka, not rum. Tip: for those of you have never bought vodka before and think you can get it from Publix, apparently you can’t. You have to go to the liquor store (is there are reputable liquor store in Crestview?). I drove up to this seedy place and, not seeing any other cars in the parking lot, parked, entered, made a beeline for the vodka, bought the cheapest bottle for the size that I could find, and left. That was my excitement for the day.
