(In order to have your vanilla extract ready for holiday baking we recommend you start this project ASAP.)
- 1 bottle small bottle of vodka (750 ml)
- 15 vanilla beans (cost effective hint: the best place to get inexpensive vanilla beans is at an Indian Grocery store)
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 2 tsp cream of tarter
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tbsp Molasses
Measure one cup of granulated sugar and one tablespoon of molasses into a mixing bowl.
Simply place to vanilla beans (cut length wise and opened) in the container you store your granulated sugar in (sugar bowl, the bag the sugar came in or a sugar canister). Let beans sit for as long as you have sugar. This makes for delicious baked goods as well as for your morning cup of joe!
