This truly is the gift that will keep on giving. DIY homemade vanilla extract is so easy to make and less expensive by volume than store-bought bottles. Let the extract sit for at least a month before using or gifting. The extract can last indefinitely, and once the bottle is empty, you can dry the pods out and add them to a jar of sugar for homemade vanilla-infused sugar.


  • 5 whole vanilla beans, split in half
  • 10-15 ounces vodka

How to Make It

Put split vanilla beans in a glass container that has a tight lid or seal. Pour vodka in the container, making sure to fully submerge the beans. Close containers tightly. Let sit in cool, dry place for at least a month. The color and flavor will get stronger with time.

DIY extracts are not only cheaper than store bought, they are simple to make and easy to dress up as a present. Try making your own extract varieties with your favorite flavors. We tested vanilla, lemon, mint, and almond extracts.

Chef's Notes
