It's that special time of year...time for family traditions, egg-nog and Pfeffernüsse cookies, shopping, spending time with friends, and hopefully taking time to slow down and refresh a bit before the start of a new year.
At Lockerbeans we're getting ready to bottle a whole new batch of Vanilla Extract that's been brewing for over 1 year! Bold, strong vanilla flavor is about to break out of the Lockerbeans Vanilla factory and into your home and your recipes (but only if you buy some ')!
I happened to be walking through my favorite warehouse store doing some general shopping when I noticed a massive display of so-called Vanilla Extract, so I picked one up and looked at the label (see pics below).
Now, you may not get along with everyone in your family, but there's no reason to alienate them further by baking them items made with a horrible vanilla-flavored extract substitution.
So there it is...read it closely...extractives in water...
This means that there's some sort of vanilla flavor that's been added to water, then that mixture has some sort of alcohol mixed in with it!
We believe good things come to those who wait, so if you've been waiting for an incredibly rich vanilla flavor to use in your recipes, then your ship has just come in! We're bottling around 200 bottles this week so there's enough to go around!
Over 1 year in the making, hand-crafted and special priced for the Christmas season.
Let us know if you have any questions, and make sure to post your recipe that Lockerbeans Vanilla made even better!
