You may have noticed that most baking, whether Paleo or non-Paleo, tends to include vanilla essence.
I love vanilla essence and probably don’t use it particularly sparingly and as a lot of you already know its not exactly a cheap ingredient to be filling your cupboard with!
But here’s news for all you vanilla essence lovers! You can actually make your own! With two ingredients!!
One bottle of vodka ( any price range! Don’t think it matters), 6-8 vanilla pods.
Unscrew vodka bottle, either decant into a prettier bottle (especially good idea if for a present) or if for your own use then use the bottle you have…. Shove in all the vanilla pods.
Replace lid, store for 2-3 months and presto! Vanilla essence.
Just keep topping up the vodka as you use it.
