Therese was one of our very first vanilla extract making pros. She has graciously been available to thousands of new extract makers to provide guidance and mentor those that are just learning the craft in our private Facebook group. We are happy to share her recipe and her pictures here with you:
When I 1st started back in September 2020 I started with the Madagascar vanilla beans and grey goose vodka. I am attaching some pictures of the process that I had but I started with 2 and a 1/2 ounces approximately 13 beans which I sliced and took some caviar out of 2 of them. I've used approximately 16 oz of grey goose vodka And submerge them in the bottle enclosed.
I have only used at this point the Madagascar vanilla in 3 of my baked goods and one in the jam. I can imagine how great the vanilla is going to taste in one year September 2021. I will next be trying to Tahitian beans with Kettle One.
