Simple Vanilla Extract Recipe

1 vanilla bean
1 cup vodka (any brand)

Sharp knife
Cutting board
Glass jar with a tight-fitting lid (mason jar works well)


Prepare the Vanilla Bean: Lay the vanilla bean flat on the cutting board. With the help of a sharp knife, carefully slice the vanilla bean lengthwise, splitting it open but keeping one end intact. You should be able to open it up like a book.

Place in Jar: Put the split vanilla bean into the glass jar.

Add Vodka: Pour the vodka into the jar until the vanilla bean is fully submerged. Make sure the jar's lid is tightly sealed.

Seal and Shake: Close the jar tightly with the lid. Give it a good shake to help mix the vanilla bean with the vodka.

Store in a Cool, Dark Place: Find a cool, dark spot in your kitchen to store the jar. A cupboard or pantry works great. Leave it there for at least 6 weeks, shaking the jar gently every week or so.

Use Your Vanilla Extract: After about 6 weeks, your vanilla extract should be ready to use! You can pour it through a fine mesh strainer if you want to remove any bits of vanilla bean before using it. Use it in your favorite recipes for a delicious vanilla flavor!

Enjoy your homemade vanilla extract! It's perfect for adding flavor to cakes, cookies, and other baked treats."
