Ingredients

  • 4 scraped vanilla pods
  • alcohol , about 40% proof (we used 100ml white rum to four pods; vodka would also be good)

Method

  • STEP 1

    Roughly chop 4 scraped vanilla pods and pack into a smallish jar or bottle. Fill with alcohol, about 40% proof (I used 100ml white rum to four pods; vodka would also be good), and seal well. Shake daily. The extract is strong enough to use after just one week, but will benefit from a month of steeping. Store in a cool, dark place.
