Homemade Vanilla Extract

Homemade Vanilla Extract is easy to make and makes an impressive handmade gift for the holidays. It has so much more flavor and is more economical than store-bought versions.

I’ve been making homemade vanilla extract for years. Vanilla extract is one of my favorite ingredients of all time.

I add it to everything unless it’s a savory dish. I make 1 cup of extract at a time and it lasts (for me) about 2 months. Clearly, I use it like water.

Homemade Vanilla Extract Story


Pour vodka into a clean, air-tight re-sealable glass jar, like a mason jar.


Slit vanilla beans down the middle and then cut in half. Place vanilla beans in the container with the vodka.
