As an avid baker there is one thing that I don’t ever want to be without; pure vanilla extract.
My love for the real stuff developed years ago when my sister took a trip to Mexico and returned home with a huge bottle of it for me. She couldn’t have picked out a better gift. I cherished every single drop of it until it was gone. Since then I’ve been hooked like the true vanilla junkie I am.
Mike and Molly made homemade vanilla to give away as Christmas gifts and I’ve got to say I love the idea.
I don’t want to spill the (vanilla) beans and tell you all the details, I‘d rather you hop on over to their blog and read all about it yourselves. Not only will you find their recipe and see their great photo’s, you will also find a breakdown of how much it cost them to make, and a link where you can download the cutest little labels for your homemade goodies.
I won this bottle of their vanilla during the giveaway they hosted at the time they wrote their post. I am so grateful for having won and I will play it forward by sharing some great recipes using their homemade vanilla with you.
I can’t wait until I can crack this bottle open! 12 days and counting…
Just curious, do you like the black and white photo, or the colored photo’s best? I’m experimenting and would love your input!
