So today I am making some Vanilla. It is going to take ages but I am hoping it will be worth it in the long run. After all, a bottle of spirits and few vanilla pods are far less expensive that a trip to Mexico, right? And I won’t be bothered with sand wedged into numerous spots I would really rather NOT have sand wedged into!
I bought these vanilla pods, read label on the back that told me to go forth and purchase some spirits. I chose vodka, not sure why but I will try again with bourbon and rum…I am thinking vanilla spiced rum would be to die for! Not that I DRINK alcohol but I do so love the smell of Rum…Bundaberg Rum, in particular. Anyway, I did as the label directed:
Removed Vanilla Pods from bottle,
Split each Pod and returned to bottle
Poured Vodka into bottle to cover Vanilla Pods
Put the cork back on
Now all I have to do is put the bottle in a dark spot, return to it …daily?…to give it a shake,” just for fun”, so the label says.
Check back with me in 6 weeks time and I will let you know how the Vanilla turned out.
