Cute Handmade gifts for friends
This isn’t a new or revolutionary idea by any means. Homemade Vanilla recipes have been around for quite a while, and they’re all pretty much the same. What makes each one unique, however, is the type of vanilla bean you use. And of course this pretty label that you won’t find anywhere else.
I love the idea of giving homemade gifts for Christmas, but I’m not about to repurpose a piece of furniture for all my loved ones. Sorry guys. Ain’t nobody got time for that. Vanilla was a much easier choice.
One thing to remember about making homemade vanilla, is that it takes time for the vodka to be fully infused before it’s ready to use. The recommended time is 2 months, but after a month, you can open your bottles and see how strong they smell. If you plan on making these as gifts, just make sure you let your friends and family know when you bottled them, and when the vanilla will be ready.
First step is to cut your vanilla beans in half length wise. I found it easiest to cut the actual bean in half first, and then slice them down the middle. Make sure you have a good, sharp knife; it will make this step much easier. And watch your fingers!
Place the beans in your bottle once they’re cut and fill up each bottle with vodka. Place the top back on and then shake lightly.See also:
