I simply cannot believe that we’re looking at only 50 Days until Christmas!! Someone please tell me how this happened! From now until Christmas–I’ll be running a Homemade Christmas Series, 50 Gifts over 50 days.
It’s going to be great fun and easy on your budget!
Homemade Christmas Day 50:: Homemade Vanilla Extract
It’s not too late to make your very own Homemade Vanilla Extract to give as Christmas Gifts this year.
I usually like for my vanilla to sit and steep for at least 2 months before I start to use it. Ideally though, you would let it sit for 6 months.
Last year I gave homemade vanilla extract to many people in my life in these amber colored jars. I’ve been eyeing these amber flip cap bottles, too.
If you do not wish to purchase those, you can always recycle glass jars from items you’ve already purchased or use half-pint canning jars. Keep in mind that the homemade vanilla will last longer when in darker jars as it won’t be exposed to light.
