There is something about Labor Day that always makes me think of the holidays. We have football on TV, gumbo in the slowcooker, Starbucks released their Pumpkin Spice latte a bit early, and the temp is finally starting to drop a little here in Florida.
In the spirit of Christmas, that’s only 113 days away, I thought I’d go ahead and make my DIY Vanilla Extract that takes 2 months for the vanilla beans to infuse the vodka. I make several bottles because I will use so much of this for my holiday baking and give a few away as a stocking stuffers to the bakers on my Christmas list. It’s WAY less expensive than what you buy in stores, the same ingredients, so easy to make, and the beautiful swing bottle adds to your counter top decor.
Does Labor Day put you in the spirit of the holidays? Do you also swear every year, as I do, that you’ll start your Christmas shopping sooner than later? LOL
