Homemade Vanilla Extract
This is a must have staple in your pantry. Don’t spend a fortune on little bottles full of additives from the shops make your own
You will need :
3 or 4 Vanilla Bean Pods
I prefer to source my Vanilla Pod Beans from organic and sustainable companies
To make your own lush Vanilla Extract follow these steps
Slice Pods in half lengthways and put into desired bottle , fill with vodka and let it sit for a minimum of 4 weeks
The longer you leave it the better it is.

Thanks for posting this! I found it a while ago and have finally got around to trying it out tonight!
One question, how long do the pods last? I.e. when I’ve finished the first 250ml, do I need to start again with new pods or can I just add more vodka?
Hi Sharon gosh just saw this
You can reuse the pods a few times until the flavor starts to dissipate
