To those who want to make their own vanilla extract...

I saw some vanilla extract "kits" today at TJMAxx. They had a really nice bottle with a few vanilla beans inside, you just have to add the vodka. Just wanted to pass the info along...check out your TJMaxx! :)

Re: To those who want to make their own vanilla extract...

  • Happen to remember how many bottles/how much they were? I already have vodka in the making but I'm still looking for bottles and I have a gift card for there.  I can always use the beans for something else.
  • I think my TJ had 3 bottles left. They were $7.99 and had 3 vanilla beans in the bottle. Im not sure if thats a good price for vanilla beans or not.

    The jar is similar in size and shape to the tall one below.

  • ahh ok.  I was thinking multiple bottles but that makes sense.  It is a good price if you're buying single beans but if you're buying a lot it's not. I got about 50 or so for $25 or so on amazon.  I need to go check out some local stores for bottles.
