It’s finally THAT day!!! We get to bottle up our YUMMY Vanilla Bean Extract and Package it up for Gourmet Christmas Gifts made with lots and lots of Love!!!
Yay! We did it! Mission Vanilla Bean Extract – ACCOMPLISHED! So, what’s next? Keep your beans in their jar and in a dark place for a week or two while you gather the things you want to “Vanillaify.” Like that word? I’ll be blogging about it soon. I’m just waiting for my grey sea salt (fine) to arrive. I didn’t buy the expensive brand. I’m cheap, but if you want to go all out, go for it. Here’s what I plan to “Vanillaify” with my beans:
- Earl Grey Loose Leaf Tea
- Coconut Sugar
- Shredded Coconut (for Macaroons)
- Grey Sea Salt (For Salted Caramel and Hot Chocolate w/ Salted Caramel)
- And a few more things… like throwing a couple of beans into the my great-great-great-great grandmother’s rice pudding recipe while it’s cooking, because I KNOW it’s already killer good, and this is going to just send it to the moon and back. So, be prepared to VANILLIFY! In the meantime, enjoy packaging up you Baby Vanillas and sharing.Hey, if you like these ideas, or enjoy the posts, we’d love a pin or a comment. Interacting with you all is such fun!Also, if you like the ornaments you see in the photos, there is a DIY post on how to make those on this site too.
