Homemade Vanilla Extract
December 2010 Food & Wine magazine arrived in late November and when I was reading it, I found this awesome gift idea for my girl friends. Well Christmas 2010 came and went and I had nothing. In 2011, I wasn't going to let this happen!
So at the beginning of November I ordered the bottles from the container store. Then bought a large bottle of vodka. Then in late November I finally found vanilla beans. I bought mine at Whole Foods and they were 5 bucks a piece, but when we were recently at a brew shop (the one we visited in this post), I found 8 vanilla beans for $8. Wow, did I over pay! Well I have no idea the difference in quality, but I think it is worth a try to save $4 a bean!
