Who ever knew vanilla essence was so easily made?!


  • 500mL Vodka (any brand)
  • 20 vanilla bean sticks


  1. Slice the vanilla sticks open, place them into the vodka bottle and walk away.
  2. Shake gently once a day and you'll have vanilla essence in 2 months :)


I bought my vanilla beans on ebay and use some leftover vodka. Good quality vanilla essence can be fairly pricey. Using homemade gives you a larger batch for a better price!
