Chaya Ryvka: This Chaya with Everyday Dish TV, I am going to be showing you how to make a raw expression of vanilla extract, we are using simple whole organic vanilla beans and purified water, all we are going to do is take our vanilla beans and chop them into small quarter inch size pieces very carefully of course you are going to need a nice sharp knife because that vanilla husk can be pretty rough on your knife and sharpen it up right away, and also you are going to be using a high speed blender.
This is in something that you can make in a low speed blender if you are working with the recipes that I am showing you on everyday dish. TV and it cause for a liquid vanilla you can always use a vanilla extract just use a 1:3 ratio so if it cause for 3 tablespoons of my liquid vanilla then just use 1 teaspoon actually of the vanilla extract so its much less than a third.
So just start with the law last of that vanilla extract and tasted and if it taste wonderful then you don’t need any more and if taste liking I want a little more vanilla then add extra, the flavor is much different when you are working with the regular vanilla extract so I am going to go ahead and just take my chopped vanilla beans and put them right into my blender and simply pour my water into this blender cover up and just get it going on high and you want to keep it going until there is no fibrous husk left you are just going to have a pure brown and beautifully precious vanilla liquid so here we go turning it on.
Okay that’s perfect so you just want to let that keep going and going until you don’t see any thick fibrous husks on your blender and the whole time you want to keep your hand on there and making sure its not getting too hot it is going to get warm in that, that’s go you just don’t wanted to get steaming high.
So at this point you will take that vanilla extract and pour it into a glass container or if you don’t think you are going to be using too quickly, you can store it in a smaller glass container I have it my refrigerator for October month and its been perfectly fine, it is definitely a lot of vanilla and vanilla is an expensive item so if you want to make sure that you keep it in its in a fresh form so it will maintain, you can always pour into a ice cube trays each Ice cube is 2 tablespoons.
So if you fill in entire ice cube tray with your liquid vanilla freeze that and put it into another container and when you are freezed with and you know when you need 2 tablespoons or a quarter cup you can just pull out a couple of ice cubes and it will be safe in your freezer for up to 6 months you just don’t wanted to get freezed or burned so you will just store that in your glass container now if you notice in my blender here I still have a lot f vanilla speckled throughout my blender so I don’t want to go and just rinse this in the sink right away, I am going be ready to make something else afterwards.
So you can make your almond milk and here afterwards or if you going to go on and make the cheese cake that we are going to be making later today you can make that in your blender, you can make a Thai concentrate in your blender all sorts of things but definitely make something in this so you can use all of that precious vanilla that you have. And it will be delicious and enhance the flavor of any food that you are creating, that is our liquid vanilla you can find out more about me at the livingvision.com, and thank you for joining Everyday Dish TV.
