Back in June we started the process of making homemade vanilla extract. We have been waiting patiently, and right before Christmas we bottled up the first batch. We didn’t have a funnel quite small enough to fit the bottles, but JGL had the ingenius idea to use a condiment container we found at the grocery store for less than a dollar. It made it easy to get the liquid out of the bottle, and easy to dispense into the smaller containers.
And the vanilla extract itself? Amazing! I’ve never had such flavorful or potent vanilla extract to work with ever, so even with my lower than normal energy I’ve been looking for reasons to bake and use it. The best part? Aside from knowing exactly what has gone into each bottle, all in with ingredients, supplies and bottling equipment, each 2 ounce bottle only costs a little over $2.00.
