  1. That’s a really interesting article I love vanilla it makes such a difference to baking. Does the homemade stuff taste totally different to what would be in the bottles?

    The vanilla that comes in bottles has sugar added so the homemade version wouldn’t be as syrupy sweet. Mine gets regularly boosted by the addition of any extra used (washed and dried) vanilla pods so it gets even stronger as it ages.
