I decided I needed to include a brief description of how to make homemade vanilla extract. I bake so much (and make so much ice cream) I have to make my own vanilla or I would go broke. It is also the best vanilla ever!

Vanilla beans can be expensive so I usually buy mine online at Firehouse Pantry, or in a pinch, Amazon. I buy 4 oz at a time which keeps me in business for a few months.
