Pressure Cooker Pure Vanilla Extract

Make this pure vanilla extract in the pressure cooker and enjoy right away. No need to wait months for the beans to extract their flavor.


1. Grade B Madagascar vanilla beans 2. Smirnoff Vodka


With some good kitchen shears, snip your beans in half so they will fit nicely inside a pint canning jar.


Then split them down the middle with your scissors, but not quite all the way. Leave the top of the bean intact.


Insert the beans inside the jar and fill it with Vodka or Glycerin until almost to the first rim markings or about an inch and a half of head space.


Place a rack or trivet on the bottom of the pressure cooker pot, and barely screw the lid onto the jars and insert into pressure cooker. You can comfortably add 3 pint jars to a 6 quart pressure cooker.
