That's right - you can make Vanilla Extract at home! Here is the recipe from - Givmme Some Oven

Home made Valina Extract


  • 4 whole vanilla beans
  • 1 cup vodka (or see note below for a non-alcoholic substitution)


  1. Use a paring knife to carefully split each vanilla bean down the middle lengthwise, cutting halfway through the bean so that the seeds are exposed.
  2. Place the vanilla beans in a glass jar or bottle.  Then pour in the vodka so that the beans are covered.
  3. Place a lid on the jar or bottle, and give it a gentle shake.  Then store in a dark place for 4-6 weeks, until the vanilla is nice and dark and flavorful.
  4. Use as desired.  If you'd like to strain out the vanilla bean seeds, you're welcome to do so.  But I recommend leaving the beans in there -- that way, you can continue to top off the vanilla with more vodka as you use it, stretching out the beans so that they last for about two bottles' worth of vanilla.

For the 4-ounce small bottles, you will need 2 beans per jar.  (I cut them in each in half to fit in the bottles more easily.)

For the large 4-cup bottle, you will need 16 beans.

Cooking time listed above does not include the 4-6 weeks needed for the vanilla to soak.

*Most real vanilla extract that you purchase at the store is made with alcohol.  But if you would like a non-alcoholic version, I've read that you can substitute food-grade vegetable glycerine in place of vodka.  The same ingredients amounts and instructions in the recipe above apply.
