Today I worked on creating a simple “canning” item for the pantry. I found some organic whole vanilla beans at the Piggly Wiggly. (oink)
Located organic vodka on the shelves of a specialty store.
Used cleaned bottles from my Ginger Ale my children once consumed in under an hour.
Purchased these reusable bottle wine stoppers.
And did this easy peasy recipe for Vanilla Extract:
- Vanilla Bean in bottle
- Add Vodka
- Plug with wine stopper.
- Let sit for at least 8 weeks, but 6-12 months is ideal.
- Use vanilla extract. (Yum.)
- When bottle is empty, add more Vodka or rum.
