A little while ago, I mentioned I was
impatiently waiting for some vanilla extract. Well, I’m happy to announce it has arrived! Or better said, it’s ready. After reading that vanilla extract is very easy to make and much cheaper than importing it, I knew I had to try it out myself. And well, it turns out, it’s true 🙂
The only real vanilla extract I’ve found in Germany was around 11 Euro for a very small bottle, which is just insane. I bought two vanilla beans for 3Euro and a bottle of vodka for 5Euro. I only used about 1/3 of the bottle, so, I made about 1c of vanilla extract for less than 5Euro- not too shabby. Also, I’ve read that I can continue to use these same vanilla beans over and over, so that’s next on my list to try.
