Homemade Vanilla Extract

Posted On : November 13, 2019 By antweb


  1. Vanilla Beans – 6
  2. Clear Vodka (at least 40%) – 300 ml
  3. Edible Vegetable Glycerine – 300 ml

Procedure –

  1. Mix Vodka and Edible Glycerine together.
  2. Make sure to use a clear unflavoured Vodka. You can also use Bourbon or Single Malt Whiskey but it might have a more pronounced flavour of its own. This is why I prefer Vodka because it is so neutral.
  3. Split the Vanilla Bean with a sharp knife and scrape out the seeds from the other side of the knife.
  4. Pour the liquid in a clean and dry bottle and put seeds and beans in there.
  5. Give it a shake every now and then.
  6. It will be ready to use in 4-5 months. But the ideal would be to use it around the 8-9 month mark.
  7. Store in a cupboard away from direct Sunlight or Moisture.
