Vanilla extract: what about doing your own?

An original recipe for your ice creams, fruit bars, sorbets, cakes…and also to offer!
It’s very easy to make but it does take a bit of patience: you need to wait for the alcohol to extract the flavour from the vanilla beans. But trust me the delicious results are worth the waiting….

INGREDIENTS:
1 bottle of Vodka
5 organic vanilla beans

Place the vanilla beans in the bottle of vodka and seal. Store in a cool, dark place for at least 3 weeks, shaking the bottle every 2/3 days. After using, replace with more vodka. The same beans will continue to flavour the vanilla for up to a year.

I forgot to add one thing: Vodka has the most neutral flavour, but you can also use rum, bourbon or even brandy and create very unique extracts!
