My vanilla has been brewing for a 2 weeks. The color has become a rich, chestnut hue and I'm so excited.
I opened the bottle and as you expect the aroma was delicious. A rich vanilla scent with the slight tinge of alcohol. I wanted to dab it on my wrists like perfume (yeah, my husband thought that was odd, too).
I'll keep you posted and I'm searching for the perfect recipe to test out the fresh vanilla. I'm thinking a vanilla pound cake.
