So I was searching for how to make vanilla extract and I came across this blogger: Chef and Steward. It seemed like a pretty solid recipe so therefore what you have here I cannot take credit for. It’s their method (as far as I can tell there only really is one method) of making vanilla extract.
All you need is 230ml Rum and 3 Vanilla Pods and it’s as simple as this:
Split the vanilla pods.
Pour the rum into a sterilised jar, add the vanilla pods.
Seal and leave for a few months et voila, your very own vanilla essence.
