Whole Vanilla Bean Extract


  • 2 whole Ceylon vanilla beans
  • 1 1/2 cups vodka
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup granulated sugar


  1. In a 3 cup glass container with a tight fitting lid, combine vanilla beans with the vodka. Cap and allow to “steep” at room temperature for three weeks.
  2. Remove vanilla beans and strain liquid through a cheesecloth (if necessary). In a medium saucepan, combine water and sugar, stirring constantly, until it comes to a boil and sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and cool. Stir into vodka that has been strained.
  3. Pour mixture into a bottle; cap and allow to sit at room temperature for one month.
