Making your own vanilla extract


Since I can’t get vanilla extract in Switzerland, I’ve been making my own, and I thought I’d share the recipe.  Put some vanilla beans in a jar you can seal.  Immerse them in bourbon (I use Jack Daniels since we tend to have that on hand) and soak for about two months.  That’s it.  Super easy.  And the flavor is wonderful.  You can periodically add more bourbon and new vanilla beans over time to replenish your supply.
