A couple of years ago I started making my own vanilla extract at home, and wow, what a flavor difference!
It was so frustrating buying those tiny bottles of extract at the grocery store, spending good money, and then running out so fast. The thing that really sent me over the edge and into making my own was after purchasing a couple of bottles of vanilla extract from Trader Joe's that were just worthless. I love generally love that store, but not that product.
Anybody else making extracts at home?
