This year has brought a shortage in vanilla and as such, prices could potentially quadruple in the coming months. Inveterate and often large scale baker that I am, I have been sure to bolster my supply. Admittedly, I also rather enjoy playing with making my own extracts, so I want to be certain I can keep experimenting without breaking the bank.

Last week, I filtered about 24oz of Tahitian vanilla and slightly more of the Madagascar. I found that once I had retrieved the beans and filtered out the caviar, the resulting yield gave me nearly 7 pounds of vanilla sugar. As it turns out, it also puts a person in a great mood to putter with such things for a morning.:) The bourbon vanilla of this round is not yet ready to be filtered, but that is no surprise given it usually needs about three times as long to be ready.

This is my current vanilla, both finished and in process extracts.
