For sure. I wanted to start small because I had no idea where this would take me. I think cracking them open without actually grinding them should be in my next attempt.
Yeah, grinding them might be too much and harder to strain out the bean. That’s why I was thinking of just smashing them with a spoon or something.
Occasionally I do, but I mainly order from Alfred Peet, hand-grind in a ceramic cone, and press in a 3-cup Bodum.
slightly off topic…but what do think steeping a custard with a vanilla pod would do…?..
I have no experience with coffee steeping or vanilla pod steeping, at this point just with Jack Daniels oak chips (which was divine) I was just wondering…
I think you should try it and let us know!
…it’s poisonous isn’t it …(there’s isnt a squinty eye’d emoji but I’m doing that right now…)
It was nice knowing you, Brother, but please let us know how it tasted before you leave for the afterlife, eh?
I won’t forget to send flowers, albeit little plastic ones. [The TPA is too expensive for real ones, sorry]
I will even play you a song at your departure…
If it is, then my baked goods are deadly! I use TWO TEASPOONS in my cookies!!
I shall give it a go this weekend and report back with my findings…If I survive the initial test
Is it dead or alive?
He does indeed , a couple more on here do as well but …I can’t remember who …
@JoJo as usual was correct. @therabidweasel method of extracting the vanilla is in his notes under this recipe.
take an old 15ml juice bottle, cut a length of vanilla bean to fit, split it into quarters 90% down the length so it stays in one piece, fill the bottle with PG. Let steep as long as possible, shake nightly and will be ready in about 6 weeks when the color gets dark. It’s not very strong, but it does the job.
