Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
To make an extract, simply combine ingredients in a pint Mason jar and set aside to steep for at least 3 days. Each recipe yields cup extract, which can be stored anywhere and should keep for up to a year. If you want to give a gift of an extract, strain a portion (for aesthetics), transfer it to a little apothecary bottle, and add a piece of vanilla bean, or a spiral of lemon or orange peel.
