Holiday Vanilla Rum Extract

Fall is the perfect time to make you own vanilla extract. You can use it for gifts for the holidays or for your holiday baking. I heard the other day that the price of Vanilla Beans will be going up so if you haven't made your own vanilla extract before, now is the time!  It's easy and also makes a great gift.

What you need:
  • Clean glass jar and lid
  • 16 ounces rum
  • 4-6 vanilla beans
Place whole vanilla beans (or you can split down the middle) in the jar and pour in the rum. Cover with tight fitting lid and shake the jar a few times. Place it cool dark place for 8 weeks. It will get darker over time. Remove your beans and pour into decorative bottles if giving as a gift. This has a slightly different taste than vanilla extract made with vodka. You can use Angie's recipe for traditional vanilla extract Homemade Vanilla Extract .

Love and peace,
