The essence of baking….

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!!

How?

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.
