Homemade Vanilla Extract


  • 6 vanilla beans
  • 1 cup vodka


  • Slice open the vanilla beans length-wise and place in an air-tight container
  • Pour vodka over beans, making sure to cover beans entirely (I had to cut my beans in half to get them to fit in the jar--it's OK to chop them into small pieces if you need to)
  • Securely fasten lid, and store in a cool, dry, dark place for 2 months. Shake the container one or twice a week.
