Homemade Mexican Vanilla Extract with Printable Gift Tags
This article is a two-fold offering. Many people think that living a simple life or living a self reliant life means you must give up quality. The truth is just the opposite. In fact, you are reintroduced to what quality of life really means. When you have to make pancakes from scratch and cook them on a hearth fire, in a cast iron skillet, quality is all you are dealing with. If that batter has some powerful vanilla extract in it, well, you are living the good life.
Knowing how to draw the flavor out of things like vanilla can lend itself in many other types of flavor extraction. This article also offers up a way to turn this homemade vanilla into an extract. There are even printable gift tags that you can use as a gift as well.
