Homemade Vanilla Extract (An Update)
You may remember when I made my own vanilla extract. Well it's finally done! Actually, it has been done for over a month, but keep forgetting to post about it. Even when it's 'done', it still has a strong alcohol smell, but don't let that put you off. I've used it several times and it works just like any extract you would buy at the store.
The little jar on the left is made with bourbon and the one on the right is rum. It might make a slight difference in some recipes, but so far I haven't been able to tell. And now I have enough vanilla to last me until I die. Or probably more like a year with how much I bake...
