    I love the Mexican Vanilla. This is my brand of choice. I use it when I bake with white chocolate.

    Indulge in the rich essence of Mexican vanilla, renowned for its unparalleled taste and quality-Handpicked from family-owned Mexican Vanilla farms, bursting with flavor.

    I am not a baker of sweets so my knowledge is fairly limited. I use vanilla for home made ice cream and I’ve tried a couple of different extracts and found most of what is at the supermarket lacks flavor. I only use La Vencedora vanilla. My grandparents live right at the border of Mexico and have been getting it for years for the family. My mom moved down there and gets it for me now, I think the last time she bought it for me it was about $3. If I don’t have that vanilla, I won’t make ice cream. I have found it in some local supermercados, but here it’s about $15 for the same bottle.

    It might be cheaper to make a vacation trip to Mexico and get a bottle there. When we were in Mexico last May, we all grabbed a bottle to bring home.

    Vanillin comes from wood and is typically made for the waste product of papermills.. the feds say it is safe...

    So which beans are you getting? There was a link that was 10 beans for $14.99 and another that was 3 beans for $24? I know on the spice places I've checked, its closer to the 3 for $24 pricing for Madagascar beans.

    My wife does the homemade stuff and she has been happy with her bottles to date.

    Thanks for the links and advice. I am going to try my hand at the homemade version. Picked up the vanilla beans I listed above. Picked up this vodka. It was highly recommended from my Total Wine guy. Super clean taste. He said that this vodka will be good for this project. About $21 for the bottle.

    I highly recommend these fine folks https://www.southernflavoring.com/pr...anilla-extract I know the owner personally and they provide a great product. Their ground pepper is awesome as well.

    SheilaAnn agreed about Penzey vanilla pricing this year, had to buy a gift bottle for a neighbor and was shocked (shocked, I say) at the $$$$. But because it was a gift, we went with it.

    for our own purposes, we’ve been using the Giant Costco vanilla (it’s not "double vanilla", so we just use more if we feel like it. ). The price is decent for the amount you get. Costco also sells whole vanilla bean, which was also at a reasonable price this year . As others have said, vodka and bourbon are in our future.
