PURE vanilla extract - Page 2

post #16 of 38
To think about it icon_rolleyes.gif ...vanilla extract has alcohol in it, so yeah I do think this would work for me icon_lol.gif ....what I dont understand is it smells so great and taste so bad by itself, does making it make it taste better alone? I guess it would we dont have access to the beans around here.... so I have to stick with my McCormicks Vanilla, but this is one I will have to try when I am back in the states....can you post it in recipes so I can save it?

I just checked mine and it did not have an amount on it. A fifth is the middle size bottle. And you don't need any water or sugar. That just dilutes it.

I posted the recipe under Mexican recipes as I did not know where to put it. There was no "spices/extracts" section. icon_cry.gif

I am making some right now it smells good but I dont know what it taste like... I do know that there is now floaties from the beans in the vodka and I am going to have to strain it when I am ready to use it ...



I don't strain mine. The "floaties" are the seeds and they disseappear when I add them to the batter.

I was looking around and found that, for some unknown reason, the recipe was removed. Either that or I did not post it correctly. thumbsdown.gif The recipe posted here was the same.

I've never made the vanilla, but I have used the vodka and vanilla bean with coffee to make kahlua, and use the same method of shaking every day, etc., very good stuff. Years ago I would make it and give small bottles as gifts, especially at Christmas.

My decorating instructor buys clear vanilla in bulk from Watkins, and he sells me what I need in smaller bottles. I think it is good vanilla, too, but maybe I'll try this recipe! vj

They sell it where the spices are sold, generally 2 per bottle.

I'm pretty dang cheap, so just to be sure... there should be no danger of carcinogens in imitation vanilla, right?

Not that I know of. I've never heard of anyone getting Vanilla cancer before. icon_razz.gificon_biggrin.gif

Did you ever figure out where the recipe went......your recipe would make about 3 1/3 cups, I think I converted that right, anyway, that is quite a savings. I use the Tone's Brand that I get at Sam's and it's $12.88 for 16 oz.....I'd like to try your recipe....even if I have to wait 2 months before I can use it! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif
