Why do store-bought extracts taste so different, when they’re supposed to be as basic as it gets? We think it comes down to freshness and where the ingredients were sourced. The fact is, fresh ingredients usually taste better.
That’s why vanilla extract recipes are so useful. If you’ve never made your own extract before and find it daunting, we’ve got news for you. It’s so easy, and you can make your extracts in large batches so that you won’t have to make or buy any for a long time. Doesn’t that sound great? Here’s the kicker: it will save you LOTS of money, too. Store extracts are so expensive compared to fresh ingredients.
