Homemade Vanilla Extract
Thanks to my wonderful friend, who found the ideas and recipes for homemade Vanilla around Thanksgiving time. I decided that it would be a great way to feed my science/learning cravings and have Christmas gifts out of the deal too. 🙂

I bought my Vanilla Beans on-line..
they have bottles too, and several other sites, but by the time I got the beans, I was too excited to wait for the mail, so I just hunted the local craft stores. 🙂
As for the Glycerin- I didn’t know where to go, so I asked the people who worked at our local Natural Foods grocery store (Sprouts is the one near us) and they carried it, so I didn’t even have to hunt very far.
