Vanilla extract DIY

HandCraftedHome made Pure Vanilla Extract

Making your own Pure Vanilla extract.

Okay for starters let’s address the issue of alcohol.

Real vanilla contains Alcohol, yes even the very expensive organic variety. There really is not a way around it, but it really will be okay.

I am not asking you to drink the bourbon or the entire Bottle of Vanilla. ~grin

If you do drink Alcohol your bottle of Bourbon might need to be replenished more frequently,  then those of us who do not.

I bake and use vanilla almost daily and my bottle of vanilla is still about 3/4 full after 6 months.(8 ozs)

Great investment for great vanilla and great food!

Okay so what we need to get rolling here…

  • Bottle or bottles ( You can make more than one at a time, if you order the vanilla beans below you can make 2 batches at once and still have bourbon left to make more as gifts or use in a cake recipe, if you like)
  • Vanilla Beans
  • Bourbon

Bottles here

Reagent Bottle, Amber Glass, Wide Mouth, 250ml / 8 Oz

Vanilla Beans Here

Delitaliana Grade A Premium Madagascar Gourmet Bourbon Vanilla Beans (Pack of 10)

The Best Bourbon Hands down for Vanilla Extract

Whiskey Acres Bourbon is USA Farmer owned and operated.

From Seed to Distillation American Farmed and Handcrafted

http://www.binnys.com/spirits/Whiskey_Acres_Bourbon_Farmcrafted_Whiskey_942842.html

Using 5  vanilla Beans  Split each vanilla bean in half lengthwise. 

Place the vanilla beans in a bottle. Cover them with 8 ounces bourbon, making sure they are completely submerged. Cover  bottle and give it a good shake.Store the bottle of vanilla beans in a cool, dark place for 6 weeks  shaking it from time to time. Taste the extract and let it infuse longer if you want a stronger flavor. I leave the pods in my bottle but you can remove them from the bottle when infusion is complete.

Enjoy your vanilla!

Ok .. sorry about the rabbit trail back to cheesecake…

Pie Crust

You can use this easy pie crust or one out of the book or other low carb crust of your choice.

Simple Low Carb Pie Crust

  1. 1 2/3 cups of Almond flour (or mix of 1 cup almond flour and 2/3 cup ground nuts into a meal)
  2. Almond Flour Blanched
  3. 1/2 stick of butter melted ( or 3 tablespoons melted butter and 2 tablespoons Coconut Oil)
  4. 2 tablespoons Truvia
  5. Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes. Allow to cool slightly before filling.

 

 

Filling ingredients

2- 8 oz pkgs cream cheese( left out to room temperature)

3 eggs

1/2 cup sour cream

1 and 1/2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract

or make your own here

7 tblsp Swerve or Truvia

Method

Beat cream cheese in mixer an ad in one egg at a time , followed by sour cream , swerve and vanilla.

*Reserve 2/3 cup and divide in half. This will be for the chocolate (1/3 cup of reserve) and strawberry (1/3 cup of reserve) swirl.

Pour cheese cake batter( not the reserved batter) into prepared crust.

Now add 1/3 of reserved batter into 1/2 cup of strawberry syrup.

Mix well and ad to the top of the cheesecake that is in the pie crust.

Next add 1/3 of reserved batter into warm batch skinny milk chocolate.

Drop by spoonful in random pattern on cheesecake( work quickly so it does not harden) Take a knife and run it through the chocolate in a swirl pattern to make the design.

You are almost done!!!

I know it is alot of work but just wait until you taste it!!!!

Bake at 350 degrees for 35- 45 minutes until firm and not jiggly. (knife inserted should come out clean,unless you place it in the chocolate lol!)

The chocolate will get dark but dont let it burn.

Let it cool on a wire rack and top with sweetened whip cream and strawberry drizzle.

You can use the remaining strawberry syrup to freeze or use in my crockpot strawberry Chicken Reccipe over caulirice as a FP!!!!  Little Things

THM friendly Eggs benedict

I have been craving craving craving eggs benedict and homemade bread pudding like my dad( and grandma) made. The bread pudding is coming in a later post , but as for the eggs benedict it is here!Thanks to Briana’s Basic Bread, which is a FP if you are a trim Healthy Mama. If you are not a Trim Healthy Mama, it simply means low carb sugar free bread… (really!)Untitled design

 

So … As I was saying I have been craving eggs benedict and I really did not want to deviate from my no white flour way of eating. White flour does not agree with my stomach at all! It takes all the fun out of indulging now and then if you later have to contend with abdominal pain. 🙁  Really no fun at all!

So here we go on the journey to those foods that hit the spot. Whether that spot be a particular craving, like the Eggs benedict or a comfort food with nostalgic memories.

I started with Brianas Basic Bread Recipe found here

I poached the eggs in my handy dandy egg poacher
P1020214

I love my egg poacher it cooks 4 eggs or egg whites at one time.
You can pick one up for yourself here on amazon

Excelsteel 18/10 Stainless 4 Non Stick Egg Poacher

I then made the low Hollandaise sauce

Using the following ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3 medium egg yolks
  • pinch of mineral salt
  • 1-2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoon water
  • 1 teaspoon dry sherry, dry vermouth or dry white wine (optional)
  • 1 pinch cayenne (optional)

I Melted the butter firsst an let it cool for a few minutes( only a few minutes,like 2 or 3, not 20 lol)

I then blended all the ingredients in my vitamix and slowly added the melted butter to the mixture Melting the Butter on the stove. Mixing well and letting it “cook” in the vitamix.

I then layered my slice of FP Bread

Poached egg

and Hollandaise sauce.

Breakfast fit for a King, or Princess.

One more recipe modified! WooHoo!!!!Eggs Benedict(2)I am thinking that this might qualify as a deep s.
If you try leave me feedback or shoot me an email and let me know how you like it,
Are there any family favorites you would love to see converted?
