Easy Gluten Free Vanilla Extract Recipe

So if you are like me it’s hard to find good vanilla that is gluten-free or one that at least says that on the label. Plus many of the store-bought ones have caramel coloring, added sugars, and preservatives, yuck! I was purchasing the crapy stuff until I found out how easy it is to make Vanilla Extract… I mean really easy!

Here’s what you need:

All you need to do is place the vanilla beans in the jar and then fill the jar with vodka. In this case, I use about 10 beans and placed them in a 12oz mason jar then filled it with vodka.

Then I screwed the lid on it and then place it in my pantry. It needs to sit for at least 6 weeks, longer is better as it will give you more flavor. Once a week gently shake it up.

So there you have it… so easy right?!

Different Beans will give you different flavors.

  • Bold/Smokey – Ugandan Beans
  • Traditional –  Madagascar Beans
  • Floral – Tahitian Beans

Experiment with the different flavors and if you don’t like them give them away as gifts, or you can make a batch just to give away. How cute is it to use these 2 oz little bottles, decorate them and then give them away for the holidays. They would make great gifts for just about anyone. Download these vanilla extract labels I created here and use Avery 8293 labels to print them on.

And don’t just save it for baking, add a drop or two to your coffee or hot chocolate. Would also be great in some oatmeal.
