Well, it has been 8 weeks since I started making my own vanilla extract.
Let me tell you, it works. After 8 weeks, it smells like vanilla extract.
I think I put in about 10 pods and used a bottle and a half of vodka.
I actually had to use some of the vanilla extract the other week when I was making my carrot cupcakes.
I re-filled my empty vanilla extract bottle with some of the "new" vanilla extract. I didn't strain the liquid, just funneled it in.
Can't wait to start using this extract in baking.
If you can get your hands on some pods and some vodka, you should really try this.
