Zahar vanilat facut in casa si esenta de vanilie
 Reteta de zahar vanilat facut in casa este foarte usoara si destul de rapida. Cea de Esenta de vanilie e la fel de usoara, dar dureaza cateva luni pana e gata. Oricum ar fi, eu va recomand sa le faceti si sa le folositi in retete. Nu mai folositi zaharul vanilinat cumparat din comert, pentru ca esenta din el este chimica 100%. 

Esenta de vanilie

  • 10 pastai vanilie (eu am gasit bio)
  • 1 cana de vodca (cea mai buna e Absolut)

 Despica pastaile de vanilie in doua. Ina zicea ca trebuie puse intr-o sticla in picioare. Eu am avut doar un borcan, asa ca le-am taiat pe jumatate ca sa intre. Pune vodca peste, astfel incat sa le acopere. Astupa bine borcanul si pune-l in camara sau un dulap mai nefolosit, la intuneric. Lasa 3 luni la macerat. Din cand in cand agita amestecul.
Dupa 3 luni amestecul va avea o culoare de chihlimbar si aroma de vanilie. Strecoara esenta si peste pastaile ramase mai pune o tura de vodca. O sa vedem peste alte 3 luni daca si a2a tura e la fel de aromata ca prima.

Zahar vanilat

Se face clasic, cum il facea si bunica. Taie mic o pastaie de vanilie si amestec-o cu ce fel de zahar vrei. Foloseste dupa o saptamana. Dupa ce folosesti zaharul, completeaza cu altul.

English version

I found this recipe for vanilla extract without chemicals on Ina’s blog. And I immediately put it into practice. Here it is, after 3 long months of expectation, the result

What You Need for Vanilla extract

     * 3 vanilla beans
     * a 500 ml jar
     * 2 cups (400 ml) vodka (good quality). I used Absolut Vodka

  Split vanilla beans in half lengthwise. Cut in two. Put vanilla beans in the jar and cover with vodka. Put the lid and close it well. Leave it in a cabinet in dark. Let soak for 3 months. Occasionally stir the mixture.

After three months will have an amber color and vanilla taste. Strain and reuse remaining beans.

Vanilla sugar  is a classic, as my grandmother used to make it. Cut a small vanilla bean and mix it with sugar (which type you want). Use after a week. Refill with another sugar.

    Sa stii ca si esenta e foarte buna. Cand o pui in prajituri alcoolul se evapora. Ramane doar aroma de vanilie.
