Happy Sunday! It’s snowing at the homestead this morning.
This week I had one focus… derby car. We’re slowing making progress!
I was able to make a quick batch of homemade vanilla extract.
It’s so simple… vodka & vanilla beans. Just add 6 – 7 vanilla beans (split down the middle and cut in half) to about 4 cups of vodka. Store for 2 – 3 months and that’s it! I purchase my vanilla beans from Mountain Rose Herbs. I paid $23 for 4 oz of vanilla beans (about 25 – 30 long beans). That is a lot cheaper than my local grocery store. They had ONE bean in a glass jar for $11!
Pure vanilla extract. Not that imitation stuff! And they’ll make fantastic gifts for the holidays!
This week I also started (and finished!) another book borrowed from my daughter’s teacher. This was a great book!
