How to Make Homemade Extracts (Any flavor!)
PREP TIME: 5 MINUTES
EXTRACTION PROCESS TIME
4 whole vanilla bean pod
8 ounces vodka
8-ounce glass jar
Prepare the raw ingredient for extraction. For vanilla extract, use a sharp knife to split the vanilla pod open lengthwise to expose the tiny seeds inside. Place the raw ingredient inside an 8-ounce glass bottle or mason jar.
Pour vodka into the bottle to fill, leaving a 1/2-inch space between the vodka and the top of the bottle.
Place the lid on the jar to close. Let sit for 6 weeks, giving the bottle a gentle shake every 2-3 days. Be sure to store them in a cool, dry place away from sunlight.
The extracts will be ready for use after 6 weeks. If you’d like, you can strain the raw ingredients from the extract bottles. Extracts stay good for at least several years.
