Homemade Vanilla
September 26, 2007

I love to make things from scratch but I think I like the store bought better. Mine still tastes too much like alcohol and not enough like a good full strength vanilla extract (I have one from Mexico). It has been sitting for about 8 months with about 12 split vanilla beans. I still taste the alcohol. Next time I won't buy "gold rum". Update - this works well in baked goods. Still tastes like strong alcohol in my ice cream mixes.
