Homemade vanilla extract makes the perfect gift for the baker and chef in your life. Extract is made with whole Tahitian Vanilla Bean and 9 oz. of your choice of vodka or bourbon. Vanilla needs to steep for at least 2 months, but the longer you wait, the better the flavor. Once it is all gone, just add more vodka or bourbon and it will keep producing vanilla for many years to come! Bottles can be customized with a special label and ribbon so your loved one remembers who gave them their vanilla.
