Now the next step, Let sit for 6 mos! Shaking the bottle every few days. Every day for for the first few weeks. Once I figured out the extract process I realized you could make several kinds. Orange (3 large oranges, rinds peeled to one cup of vodka), Lemon (5 -6 lemon rinds peeled off to one cup vodka) Coconut, Almond. The list became endless and so did all the little glass bottles in my pantry. I think glass works a whole lot better than plastic, just my opinion.
Almond extract is just a little different. The recipe is 1/2 cup of crushed almonds to 1 cup of vodka . The almonds will not be the typical scent you expect because they are sweet almonds in the US . Typical almond extract is made with bitter almonds (which are not sold in the US, because they are poisonous) And here we go...PEACH or nectarine seeds. SURPRISE! They are poisonous as well, but in large amounts...so adding 5-6 are not going to hurt your extract. Surely all that vodka does something to them..
So happy experimenting! Special note, if you look around you will find a lot or recipes stating only 3 vanilla beans per cup. Professionals use double strength vanilla, so add those extra beans!
