Homemade Vanilla Extract


Ordered 100g of vanilla pods from Candy and had yet touched them till today.Ha! Decided to try making some vanilla extract and later vanilla sugar out of them. I am making a very small portion to try out.Made one for my baking lover,Genie as well.Good things must share.Haha!
I got the recipe from here. I like recipes by Nigella Lawson and i trust that this will work out really good because it was provided by her team. ;)
I will update in two months time on the results. And also i will be making vanilla sugar as well once i get bigger bottles from Tott. So stay tuned!

  • about 40ml extract
*u can make two portions so u won't waste the other half of the pod

You will need:
  • 42ml of rum (u can use volka as well)
  • 1/2 vanilla pod
  • 1 small glass bottle

The Preparation:
  1. Wash the bottle and sterilised it.(place in oven at 120°C for 10 minutes.)
  2. Cut the pod into half.
  3. Split the halved pod across lengthwise,leaving the end uncut.
  4. Place it into the bottle.*Bend it a little so it will get fully soaked later.
  5. Add rum.
  6. Store the bottle in a dark dry and cool place.
  7. Occassionally,bring it out to give it a little shake.
  8. Ready to be use in 2 months time.
