Make Your Own Vanilla

If you make your own vanilla, it will be much lighter in colour than the commercial brand, fragrant, and it will last you a year or two. You will need:

  • 1 mickey vodka/alcool
  • 3 vanilla beans

Carefully slash the vanilla beans and drop them into your mickey, which you then hide in the back of your cupboard for 2 weeks before using.

Whenever you are making homemade ice cream, take 1-1/2 ” off one of the beans, cut it open, and scrape the seeds into the cooled custard.
