Make your own real vanilla extract

homemade vanilla extract on last day

I use vanilla essence in virtually all my cakes. And almost every time, Marius asks me why do I use this stuff.

"- What do you mean? For flavor of course. This is what I've learned from my mother."

He continues:

"- No, I mean why don't you make your own homemade vanilla extract? The bottle has anything but vanilla and the recipe is really simple."

Indeed, there was sugar, caramel, artificial vanillin synthesised from wood byproducts and other flavors. Hmm, no traces of vanilla.

Super delicious high content vitamin C recipe for colds

These last two weeks we dranked a lot of warm herbal tea with lemon and honey for cough and stuffed noses.

We used 3 large jars of honey and 2 kilograms of lemons. This is as close as we get to hot lemonade :)

I also tried this new high content vitamin C recipe this weekend:

  • lemon juice from 2 lemons
  • orange juice from 1 orange
  • 2 teaspoons of bee pollen. I added more, because my daughter loves it.
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 1/2 liters (17 oz) water

I mixed it all up in the blender. It was super delish. I must go get more supplies :)

Update...
Not matter how much honey I add, the recipe tastes too much like lemons. Maybe because it is the main ingredient :)

Anyway, I added more water and used just 1 and 1/2 lemons, then I let it think for 15-20 minutes in the fridge. It tastes divine afterwards.

Don't forget to shake.
