Homemade Vanilla
Reviews:
July 31, 2009

Making your own vanilla is a great idea! A few tips; my mom has been making vanilla for over 20 years..it always turns out great. Her advice is to split the beans before putting them in the liquor to release the most flavor. A lot of people use vodka, mom has always used Brandy(J&B,not expensive)..the brandy gives a wonderful color and flavor. The vanilla really should be left alone for about 3 months(just give it a gentle shake every few weeks). This vanilla has always turned out very well,and is terrific to give as gifts.
