For all the special people that I spend 40 plus hours a week with at the office,
I made the above homemade vanilla extract.
It was super easy.
I first purchased twelve 4 oz. clear bottles here
From a local spice shop I purchased 6 Tahitian vanilla beans.They were quite large so I cut them in half and placed 2 slivers in each of the 12 jars.
I then filled each jar with Jim Beam Bourbon, slapped a cute label on them and tied a sweet note on each bottle instructing the recipient to let the vanilla sit for at least 3 months before using.
I am now off for an evening of gifting and eating with my family.
All the best this Christmas Eve,
