    Hi Marg, excited to try this :) I also wonder do you mean add the pods at the end when you say add bean scrapes. 

    Also how much does this roughly make? Thankyou :)

  • Hi Marg - What do you mean

    Hi Marg :cooking_7: - What do you mean by the "bean scrapes" ? Are you talking about the seeds inside the pods or do you use the vanilla pods too? I have been looking for homemade vanilla essence for a while so was glad to find this one - congrats on making it BTW!

    Looking forward to your comments.

    Can you please explain what adding the bean scrapes mean?  Is this different from the seeds in the middle? I haven't used a vanilla pod before.  Also what quantity does this make?  Thanks

  • Hi Lynette I keep my essence

    Hi Lynette

    I keep my essence in the fridge and use it very regularly.  I add the brandy to preserve it a bit longer.

    It gets used up in a few weeks because I love vanilla essence.

    See how you go. Marg
