Making Vanilla Extract -(Kit Instructions Here)
Making vanilla extract is simple: Just add beans, spirits and a lid...then wait for a year. You may need to cut your beans into smaller pieces to fit into your bottle. We also recommend slicing the bean pod down the middle so the seeds inside the bean are fully exposed. (This equates to faster extraction). Once each bottle is filled, store the vanilla extract in a cool place (65 degrees or so) and away from any sunlight. Watch as the extract slowly turns to a dark amber over time.
Remember, pure and real extract is a rich, transparent amber color. It is NOT dark, cloudy or non-transparent. Many extract manufacturers infuse their extracts with corn syrup and other sugars and color additives...because it's cheeper and doesn't require as much time to extract. Real extract isn't rushed.
Give extract making a try for yourself! We've made it easy. Just pick your bottle, select your vanilla beans and then choose your spirit.
Have fun and please tell us how it turned out!
