A month ago when I started this blog my first DIY project for the blog was vanilla. Remember this:
Since then I have tried coconut, almond, and mint extract. The almond has been the hardest to get to cure/infuse and I’m not sure I am totally sold on the coconut either. The mint is currently at my sister’s house, so I’ll feature that later.
Anywayz…all the recipes I saw for vanilla said it needed to sit for 6 weeks to 6 months…here’s my vanilla after just 30 days:
We’ve used it several times and it’s phenomenal already. It will of course get better the longer it sits, but it’s really good right now. Good enough that I will never buy store-bought vanilla again.
