Vanilla extract

We don’t often think about Christmas in July, but if you love giving home-made gifts from your kitchen you may want to consider this.  I think any baker would love to get a bottle of home-made vanilla extract.  Those little bottles of pure extract can cost a pretty penny.

There is really nothing to it – you just have to wait about 6 months.  “My Catholic Kitchen” used the bottles that the vodka came in and added her own touch with some personalized labels to make this project even less expensive.  If you don’t know what to give that person that has everything, there is nothing more special than a home-made gift from your kitchen.
