Double Strength Vanilla Extract is BACK!!!
***UPDATE – SOLD OUT TIL SUMMER 2018!!***
Double Strength Vanilla Extract is BACK!
I have gotten so many emails for the past couple of years from many of y’all wondering when I was going to bring back my handmade double strength vanilla extract. If you’ve been with me for a while, you know I’d offer it up for sale twice a year in limited quantities.
Making the vanilla extract was one of those things that my late husband & I did together – and after he passed away in 2015, it was one of those things that I just wasn’t ready to do alone yet. My heart just wasn’t ready. I would make the vanilla & Mike would bottle it, label it, & ship it. So, the thought of making it without him to bottle it just seemed too heart wrenching for quite some time.
I am finally getting to a point (almost 2.5 years later… but hey… I’m getting there!!) where I can do things that we used to do together by myself, but with the memory of us doing it together in my heart.
So many of you have emailed me asking about the vanilla extract and I’m finally ready to start offering it again for your baking pleasures. I’ve got a batch that’s been aging for 7 months & I just bottled it up & labeled it yesterday. This vanilla extract is DIVINE!! (if I do say so myself). Each bottle comes with a Madagascar bean inside to help keep the vanilla nice & vanilla-y (like my word?) and decadent. You will only need half of what a recipe calls for when you use this – as in, if the recipe calls for 1 tablespoon… you will only need to use half of a tablespoon of this. Of course, if you like this vanilla as much as I do… you can always use more 😉
Right away, you will notice a huge difference between this & store-bought. It’s darker, stronger, & you will see beautiful tiny flakes of vanilla bean with each teaspoon you use. When I say it’s divine – oh, it’s DIVINE.
I’m offering this in limited quantities – once it’s gone, it’s gone until the summer time. It takes 6-7 months to properly age the double strength vanilla extract which is why I only offer it in smaller batches twice a year.
Head over to my Etsy store to buy them. Order now to ensure Christmas delivery!! I will be shipping them immediately for fast delivery in time for Christmas!
