Homemade Sugar-Free Vanilla Extract

by KetoDietApp.com

Step 1For making vanilla extract, use high-quality vodka. Prepare a glass jar you will use for the extract by sterilising it in hot water.

Step 2Cut the vanilla beans lenghtwise, place in the glass jar and seal well. The more vanilla beans you use, the more flavour and darker colour you will achieve. Make sure the beans are completely submerged. Opt for really dark oily beans, as these will give the extract the best flavour.

Step 3Infuse for 4-6 weeks. The longer you leave it, the more intense the flavour will be.

Step 4Shake 2-3 times while it's infusing to help release the flavour.

Step 5After about 4 weeks, the extract will become dark and is ready to be used. You can add stevia if you like - vanilla flavour works best!

Step 6Store in a dark cool place for up to 6 months and use just like store-bought vanilla extract.
