Make your Own Almond Extract
I was right, it was pretty simple. All you need are almonds and vodka. You want to use the almonds that are peeled, and the raw ones are better, if you can find them. If not, the blanched and sliced ones will work as well.
So, here’s all you have to do:
Add 1 cup of sliced almonds into a small jar. Cover with vodka and cap tightly. Store in a cool, dry place for a month, and swish it around every couple of days.
Drain the almonds, cap tightly, date and store! You can use this for baking, or even in making homemade coffee drinks. I like to use it in oatmeal, as a new and different flavor. I make about a pint jar, and it lasts me about 6 months before I need to make more.
