How To make a Homemade Alcohol -Vanilla Extract
Split open or chop into pieces FITNCLEAN vanilla bean pods into a clean coverable jar containing vodka or your choice alcoholic spirit (~50g vanilla pods for every 16 oz. alcohol). You can scale up or down using the stated ratio as a guide but make sure there is enough alcohol to completely submerge the beans. Tightly close the jar and allow content to macerate for about 6-8 weeks or longer while shaking periodically (every 3-5 days).
The recommendation for pure vanilla-alcohol extract solution is = 100 g of vanilla bean pod per liter using a 35% or greater alcohol.
Different types of alcoholic spirits are used but Vodka and Rum are the most commonly used. Vegetable glycerin oil is also used sometimes.
