How to make your own Vanilla Extract-Update

Okay, now we are in week four and the color is noticeably darker than last time we looked and the aroma is clearly coming around. I am thinking that it will be at least another 2-3 weeks and they should be ready.

As you can see from the pictures, the Tonga beans are quite a bit darker than the Tahitian beans. The aroma is clearly very different, with the Tonga beans giving off a pleasing fig like aroma versus the Tahitian which is quite floral and bright.

If you want to try this project it couldn’t be easier. Just buy a bottle, order the vanilla beans from and fill with vodka. Then be patient.
