Make Your Own Organic Vanilla Extract

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: recipes, dessert, newsletter

Vanilla: One of the most loved flavors and perhaps the most artificially (and poorly) imitated. Real vanilla is also rather expensive. Making your own is easy and much less expensive than a $2.50 per ounce in the store. At that price, you can hardly afford to use enough to truly appreciate this amazing delicacy. Way better to simply make your own... trust me, your culinary life won't be the same.
