DIPLO DIY ❃ Never-ending Vanilla Extract

Quick post to let you know that I finally started on my own Neverending Vanilla Extract. I found the DIY instructions on The Hungry Mouse via (what else?!?) PINTEREST!

Doing this project was in response to the crazy prices of pure vanilla extract here! You can get cheap imitations of vanilla flavor, but who wants that right?! And it was so easy! I just needed a few vanilla beans, a bottle that could fit em in and vodka to cover! I never imagined it could be so easy.
That there is the picture of the beginning of my Neverending Vanilla Extract! Oh, and I made sure to tag it with the date today using my handy DYMO labeler so I know when it’s about ready for use in about 6-8 weeks.  I don’t know how it will end, but I’ll be sure to update you!

For step-by-step instructions on how to make your own Neverending Vanilla Extract, complete with tons of pictures (just the way I like it!) click here or on the picture below!


It’s called “neverending” because, according the The Hungry Mouse, it will last you years! Whoa. I don’t know how true that is, but the cost savings alone makes it worth a try!

    WHAT! This is the simplest way to solve my needs of vanilla extract baking needs without spending so much money on the ridiculously inflated price, expensive vanilla beans that are exported from indonesia! Thank you, thank you!
