Believe it or not I did not realize that vanilla extract was so simple to make and I bet it has a better taste when using in recipe because it is fresh. This is a super great video and the tutorial with mixing some other flavors with it is so great. I am going to experiment with different flavors too. This will be great for holiday cooking and for gifts. Anyone try mixing flavors? How did they taste?

I signed in and the recipe isn't there. What happened to it?

@Moyssis, I understand your concern. As much as I like Vanhulles 7626692 answer, for a person with an alcohol problem, this is not an answer. I understand that when an alcoholic know of ANY amount of alcohol is in the house, it can be detrimental to that person in falling off the wagon. The opportunity is too great for them to ignore. Please try and ask a pharmacist or someone in the alternative health industry for an answer. They may know of an alternative to alcohol for infusion of vanilla beans or anything else. Sorry I wasnt more help.

I am hoping you can give me an alternate method to make Vanilla extract. I have many friends that are involved in AA and they will not use any of the flavorings, because they all have alcohol in them. Is there anyway to make flavorings without using any alcohol? It would be good information for many people that are enjoying sobriety.

When extracts are used in cooking, the alcohol is evaporated leaving only the flavor behind. Alcohol does not stand up to heating and/or cooking.
