We’re home from our little holiday! As much as I absolutely love going to Yamba, it sure is nice to be home in my own kitchen again. The thing about going away on holidays is that it’s so much more difficult to eat well. I missed all my lovely organic grains, flours, etc, that’s for sure.
I stopped by the kitchenwares store (again! gulp) when we did a quick grocery shop to start re-stocking the fridge. I bought some more glass jars, and I can now proudly say that my baking goods, snacks, and breakfasts cupboard is now 100% plastic free! No plastic storage containers, and no plastic packaging. Everything is in a glass jar! Woohooooooo!!!
Now to tackle the rest of my beans/rice/legumes etc cupboard… It’s almost there.
I’m also very glad to be able to shake my vanilla extract daily again, now that we are back from holidays. It is starting to look so good! It’s only been “brewing” for two weeks now, but you can definitely see the magic happening.
Hi! Very inspired to try the vanilla extract!! Wondering where you order your beans from…?
Hi Kirsty, glad to hear I have inspired you! It really is so easy to make vanilla extract (you just have to be very patient!). I ordered my vanilla beans from Sunshine Vanilla.
To store them, wrap the bundle in baking paper and tie an elastic band around it (not too tightly though). Then store in an airtight glass jar, in a cool and dark cupboard. I am just reaching the end of the bottle of vanilla extract now – probably only a few tablespoons left. So it certainly does last you a while. I have a new bottle brewed, ready and waiting to be used! 🙂
