Vanilla Extract Recipe

Unfortunately, there is a worldwide vanilla shortage, so I am no longer selling vanilla beans.

I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

How to make vanilla extract:

6 vanilla beans
1 bottle vodka (I recommend Keglevich, though any reasonably good vodka will do - bad vodka could make the vanilla taste "off")
Split vanilla beans down the middle with a knife. Put into the bottle of vodka. Cap tightly, and place in a cool, dark place. Leave for 4 to 6 weeks, shaking the bottle occasionally. You may need to run the finished product through a coffee filter or other sieve in order to make it free of small vanilla pieces.

Is shipping free, or does the payment process add a shipping fee?

The listed price includes shipping. There is a small discount for people who pick up from me. (22 instead of 24 for six vanilla beans)
