Homemade Vanilla Extract Recipe - How to Make Vanilla Essence at Home
Homemade vanilla extract is a lot more cheaper and finer than store bought. You will get very good aroma and flavour from using homemade vanilla.
Since i have been baking quite a lot, i am running out of vanilla extract often. It is little expensive here because i use it a lot. So i thought of making vanilla extract at home since i have some vanilla beans lying in the house. Hubby's friend got a bottle of vodka from russia, so thought of using that to make this.
And i am telling you, once you try this homemade vanilla extract, you are never going to buy store bought stuff again. This stuff is pure gold.
I used this Sprig Vanilla Bean
Broken Glass Pudding
Layered Finger Jello
Chocolate China Grass Pudding
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.

Where did you buy this bottle
is Vodka necessary making Vanilla essence? can we use any other liquids a part of VODKA or alcohol ?
appreciate your reply
Use any booze you want, it's just Vodka has no flavor of it's own. Other booze leaves it's own flavor in the result.
