Love it! And I LOVE your sassiness ;) How adorable is that topper on the jar!?
Awesome! ~Cheers Kim
Golly if you can't part with Vodka, try it with bourbon. Oh my,it smells sooo good and gives a great subtle taste. Never thought of it for a gift, but now that you mention it.
Gee, seems like I haven't stopped by in ages! Love the recipe for the vanilla! Can't wait to make some for gifts! Have a wonderful day!Mary
Cool! Thanks for the recipe. I love this idea. :)
You definitely have my attention - I didn't know you could do this, and am already quite persuading myself to part with my vodka. Two months is a long wait, though; thank goodness for the rum to ease the weary passage of time.
actually mise, I think if you really can't wait, a vanilla martini could be made! How bloody yum would that be!
I'm so impressed! I've always wondered how this was done. What a treat!oxo
Woohoo! Thanks for this one, Heather! Now I can stop bugging my mom about sending my vanilla extract from trader Joe's!xoxop.s. you are just so darn tootin' cute.
Lovely recipe! I'm pretty sure the vodka's going to be worth it. Enjoy the glorious day, Kellie xx
Ohhh what a wonderful idea :) Thanks for sharing!
so beautiful! thanks for that. do more!! great inspiration and photos as always...
...oh yeah good idea ....better than mine!.....all I make is vanilla sugar!
I don't know if this is a sad thing or a glorious thing, but I think I'd probably get more use out of vanilla vodka than vanilla extract.
oh wow, how lovely, I do it with sugar all the time!
Your post is so cute, made me smile :) Great recipe, it's a keeper.
Hmmm~ I'm thinking christmas gifts here..another friday's favorite for sure :-)
My family and I visited Zanzibar, one of the original spice islands off the coast of Africa, in May, and I visited a spice farm and bought lots of vanilla beans. In July, I filled a mason jar with several beans, topped it off with vodka, and put it inside a dark cabinet. Every now and then, whenever I thought about it, I took it out to give it a swirl. I ordered some 2 oz. amber apothecary jars, and now, after 4 1/2 months, I have the most divine-smelling vanilla extract to give as gifts. The beautiful thing is, you can continue to use the beans, simply add more vodka and let it sit. It's too late for this Christmas, but start now, and next Christmas, you'll be all set to go.
Your too cute! That's all it takes to make vanilla...I'll have to try that.
The place where I live is close to Vanilla farms... But I dont know this receipe :) Thanks for this post.. Btw, the topper on your jar is lovely.
I am one of those who hate to part with their vodka.... sigh. Rum just isn't a good enough substitute for me.What a grand idea, must keep that in mind.How did the Feathered Nest go last weekend? I was working, sigh.Jen @ Muddy Boot Dreams
