I love it when I find good, useful and “homemade” information like this!
I love to make “my own.”
I love to watch things “become.”
I love vanilla!
Vanilla is wonderful. And if you’re like me you use more than you can afford because vanilla extract is expensive. I’ve been blessed in the past by a friend who brings me large quantities of Vanilla Extract from mexico. But I always feel just a little guilty when they bring it because they always give it as a gift and refuse payment for the liquid bakers treasure.
So when I read this post by Elise I was just beside myself and ready to run down to the local brown bag and get me a 5th of vodka. Humm, I wonder if Rum would be a good choice for this recipe?????
Now, all you Good Christian cooks out there who didn’t know you were using alcohol to bake your grandma’s pound cake need to do some research and find out the facts. Then you just have to admit you love vanilla extract and get over your aversion for these spirits….. you just gotta go and see how to make our own vanilla extract.
