Homeade Vanilla Extract

Photobucket

I've seen a few blogs with instructions on how to make your own vanilla extract but I can't for the life of me remember where I found those blogs. This was so simple ... so so simple. All you do is get a little bottle, add a vanilla pod and filled the bottle with vodka. Leave for six weeks and come back to find beautiful vanilla extract !! I love it !!

My little bottle at the front was cute but the alcohol evaporated ! So .... from now on I'll use the little bottles from store bought vanilla extract ... I've bought a few of them so that I can making new ones as I finish the previous ones ...

This looks ever so easy! Do you make vanilla sugar too?

I haven't made vanilla sugar ... In fact, I've never used vanilla sugar. What do you use it for ?

I use the vanilla sugar to sweeten my plain greek yogurt. I'm not a fan of too tart and the vanilla sugar adds just enough sweet and some nice vanilla flavor. I know other people use the vanilla sugar in addition to cream in their coffee instead of using flavored creamers.

I use it in my coffee. I bet it would be good on anything you sprinkle sugar on.......Oatmeal, for example....

And herein lies my problem ... I don't sprinkle sugar on anything ! :)
