Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How do I make vanilla extract from vanilla beans?
A: Chop the beans into 1/2 inch pieces.† Slicing is ok, but it is†a waste of time.† Use inexpensive, name brand Vodka.† Use one pound of beans for every gallon of extract that you want to make.† Yes, some vanilla extract recipes tell you to use a certain number of beans per ounce, but bean weight varies quite a bit - as much as 3 to 1.† Shake the bottle every day or so.† After a month or so, you will have extracted just about all of the flavor out of the beans.† You may want to strain the extract when you are done.† Please note that when you are done the beans are exhausted of flavor and are not useful for anything else other than decoration - either in your extract or dried and pulverized to be used as specs in your cooking (they will only add texture and appearance).
Q: What type of beans should I use to make vanilla extract.
A: Use extract grade B bean for making vanilla extract.† There is no harm in using Grade A, but you will not necessarily be making better extract.† Of the two species, the Planifolia/Bourbon is the flavor that people are most used to.† Why not make both (Tahitian and Planifolia)?
Q: There are many vendors on Amazon that sell vanilla beans.† Why should I buy from you?
A: Quality, Price, and Service.
Quality: We are the number on seller of vanilla beans on eBay outselling all other vendors combined.† We got that way by selling quality products at a fair price.† We have just started selling on Amazon.†

Service: We ship fast, often the same day.
