Vanilla Update.......



The vanilla extract is now starting to take colour, I have added a few more beans in. I just split them and threw them in. It is starting to take on a vanilla smell and it is at the stage that the alcohol is not as pronounced as initially. I was so worried that all you would smell is the alcohol but the vanilla is starting to take over, I think this might work!!!

Vida, Im going to do this because we have and use so many vanilla beans its ridiculous! Can you do it with vodka? X

vida said...

Paul, vodka is perfect, probably the best one for this and limoncello too, as it is not so overridding in flavour and certainly in smell as it has so little. Good luck!! Vida x

Hi V! I always do my own, and use Vodka, only. I may my own vanilla sugar, too. Do give us an update!

Your wish is my command Chef Jules, it's done. Tell me about your vanilla sugar, do you just put it in with the sugar or use a blender to combine the sugar and entire bean??? Or something else??? Vida x
