Did You Know That You Can Make Your Own Vanilla?

Pure Vanilla is expensive and I use it often.  I just visited a great website where this mom makes most of her stuff in order to eat healthier and save money.  www.heavenlyhomemakers.com  All you need is a gallon sized jar, 80 vanilla beans, an entire bottle of vodka (yes, I said Vodka), and 6 months.  Walah!  Your very own vanilla by the gallon.  Who knew vanilla was made from Vodka!  Now, the funny thing is being a pastor's wife and buying Vodka!  You think that will go over!!!  Ha! Ha!  Check out her post on how she made her own vanilla with all of the details.  http://heavenlyhomemakers.com/making-homemade-vanilla-extract-aka-why-laura-bought-a-gallon-of-vodka

Ha! I didn't know you could make your own vanilla. It sounds a little like making moonshine!

Hey- I gave you an award on my blog today. Thanks for spreading sunshine my way!

I make this and it works! You can do smaller batches though also if you dont have 80 beans... I always make it in quart jars. Its just like making herbal tinctures, imagine buying the vodka by the case for that... I am not, however, a pastors wife! Still get funny looks, can I have 3 cases of your cheapest vodka? My two kids standing next to me...
