Fruit, spice, cinnamon, cacao, coffee and mocha extracts don't require a full year to make like vanilla extracts do. These are a wonderful extracts to make in the spring and summer months before the fall holiday season. They are also a perfect gift to make for the holidays, Easter, Mother's Day, 4th of July, weddings, baby showers and much more. They can be used in any recipe in place of - or blended with - the vanilla extract called for in the recipe. 

Here is a recipe that makes roughly 4-8oz of peach extract: 
  1. Add 1oz of broken/crumbled freeze-dried fruit into a glass jar, 8oz or larger.
    1. It may be necessary to break and crumble your freeze-dried fruit to make sure it fits into the jar and also to ensure that the spirit covers it entirely. Most people prefer using crumbled fruit pieces so the spirit has more surface area contact with the fruit for faster extraction.  
  2. Add 8oz of your favorite spirit. Light spirits are recommended.
    1. Some of the fruit pieces may float and that is OK. 
  3. We recommended adding 1 whole vanilla bean to the jar, folded or tied in a knot to ensure it is fully submerged. Set it on top of the fruit.
    1. The vanilla works as a binder to both soften the bite of the spirit and blend the spirit and the fruit together beautifully. 
    2. This is another great extract that also pairs well with 1 or 2 broken cinnamon sticks for an added kick of flavor.
  4. Close the lid and store in a cool/dark place for 8 weeks. The fruit will often turn to a dark brown color, and that is just fine. 
  5. After 8 weeks, pour the extract through a fine-mesh strainer to remove the fruit chunks, crumbs and particles and to firmly press out the extract from the fruit. 
  6. IMPORTANT NOTE: Keep in mind that freeze-dried fruit will act like a sponge. It will absorb a lot of the alcohol. So you will need to spend some time pressing every ounce of extract liquid from the fruit through the strainer, like you would press a sponge. Even then, you will notice that you may only have 4-6 ounces of finished extract after starting with 8oz of alcohol, and that is OK. 
  7. For a double-fold, extremely sweet taste, repeat the steps above a second time, but make sure you top off the alcohol after the first extraction so you begin your second extraction with 8 full ounces of spirit. Just like the first extraction, the second extraction may only yield 4-6oz of finished extract that will be extremely sweet. 
  8. Keep the vanilla bean in the jar as long as you wish, or until it is no longer submerged. Then remove it to make vanilla powder, vanilla sugar or to start a mother jar

Once you make your first extract, you will find that there are countless other extract-making applications and your journey into the extract-making world begins. Visit our extract-recipe center and our vanilla extract how-to guide center to learn valuable information to make sure each extract turns out great!

Peaches and Pineapples

I bought both of these and am really disappointed. First of all they come in little pieces not at all the way they show in the add. I started the recipe with the peaches and there is no way you can use only 8oz.of liquor with 1oz of those peach pieces as they just absorb all the liquid and end od dry on top. At a loss as what to do.

Peach Bourbon

I bought the freeze dried peaches. They came in tiny little squares. I put 1oz in a jar with 8oz.of the bourbon. Well you couldn't even tell there was any bourbon in the jar. The peaches were not covered for sure which is what the recipe calls for. Have no idea how to fix this except to add more bourbon. I also did add a vanilla bean like it suggested but still am at a loss as to the amount of liquid as it dont look like there is any in there. The peaches look and acted like sponges.

Thanks for the review! We've made this extract ourselves, most recently in a live extract making party which you can see in the featured section on our Facebook group. Freeze-dried fruit acts as a sponge and you will need to really press the extract out through a strainer. Also, per our recipe above, it's helpful to break and crumble the fruit into smaller pieces to make sure it is submerged in the spirit. Rest assured, it will yield a super sweet/concentrated extract in 8 weeks as outlined in the recipe. Of course, if you are at all dissatisfied with your purchase, just send us an email and we have a 100% no-questions-asked refund policy. Thanks again!!
