Did you know you can make your own vanilla extract? It is literally two ingredients. You are probably asking, why would you want to? So besides the fact that homemade is always better, real vanilla extract is expensive! And you just get an itty bitty amount. You might say that there is the fake stuff .... imitation vanilla extract.... that’s cheap. Well.... I was listening to the radio one day and they mention what imitation vanilla extract was made from.... “secretions from a beaver's castor glands (located conveniently near its anus)“!!!!!!!! Ok now I have never been able to get that out of my head. Does that weird out anyone else? So if that isn’t enough motivation for you, how about the fact that we can’t pronounce the majority of the ingredients on labels of our food? Here is just one little way to be a bit more wholesome. And when it is this simple? Why not!
