Canning Recipes

Vanilla Extract

Cooking Directions:
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 cups vodka
5 vanilla beans -- cut 1" pieces

Combine vodka and vanilla beans in a jar with a tight fitting lid. Cover
the jar and let it stand 6 to 8 weeks. (The vodka mixture will turn amber
colored after a day or two.) After half the vanilla extract is used, add
more vodka to cover the beans. The flavor in the beans is gone when the
vodka no longer turns to a dark color.

This recipe yields 2 cups.
