8.5 oz Square Glass Bottle with Swing Top
**This is NOT imitation vanilla!**
Our Alcohol Free Vanilla Extract is simply:
Organic Vegetable Glycerin + Organic Vanilla Beans
This Vanilla Extract is very concentrated (it will be at least a “double” strength once it has infused for 4-6 months). You may find you don't need quite as much as recipes call for (or you are accustomed to using!). Start with less, and add more as you feel is needed.
The cool thing is, we also send you the vanilla beans! We don't take them out of the bottle... we keep in there for you to have. (Organic vanilla beans range from $6-$12 each!!)
You can refill the bottle with more vegetable glycerin and let it infuse for another bottle of vanilla extract, although it may not be as strong after the second infusion.
You can also use the vanilla beans/vanilla caviar in baking recipes. I personally love to grind up a small piece of a vanilla bean and use that in place of vanilla extract in a recipe. YUMMY!
Please note, Alcohol Free Vanilla Extract for sale on the market will generally have water added (even if it is not listed on the label), so know that this extract DOES NOT have water and is thick -- the consistency of vegetable glycerin. Feel free to add a bit of water if you would like it thinned down. Also, this extract does not get as dark of a color as "regular" vanilla extract with alcohol.
We also have this in an 4.25 oz size here.
**Please note, you will most likely see "pieces" of the vanilla bean (vanilla "caviar") in the bottle, along with the bean perhaps looking moldy to you. Don't worry, this is not mold! The beans break down over time and this is perfectly natural. I personally love the extra little specks as they add even more yummy flavor!
