Filtering Vanilla

Four months after starting my vanilla extract, it definitely looked done. And it smells so good! I got a 4 ounce glass bottle from The Container Store and filtered the vanilla bits out as I poured it in.

And now I have my own pure, non-imitation, high fructose corn syrup-free vanilla extract. So exciting!


I topped off the old bottle with more vodka and put it back in the pantry to continue infusing. From what I’ve read, I’ll get to keep topping it off for many, many years, so this definitely was a good investment!
