Homemade Vanilla Essence


Now this is the easiest thing ever. It involves two ingredients and it takes about 2 mins to make. Honestly this is genius!vanilla essence

It makes the perfect homemade ‘foodie present’, although obviously vanilla essence will not float everyone’s boat, but if you have a friend/family member who is a real foodie, who loves cooking/baking (or likes to think they do) then this is perfect.

I love vanilla essence but most shop bought ones have never been a near an actual Vanilla Pods and are filled  with artificial flavours and sugar . The ones made from actual vanilla or sugar free are incredibly expensive for the amount that I use them (Brownies, hot chocolate, trifle, etc).

Obviously you only need to use a very small amount of this so you could make this batch and then divide it into several smaller bottles.
