Vanilla paste: homemade vanilla extract

Today I have another basic recipe for you ... for a vanilla paste. This is a homemade vanilla extract that appears very often in the list of ingredients in my recipes. I use vanilla extract in almost every sweet recipe. Vanilla always has to go in with me. And admittedly, I'm too phlegmatic to scratch out a vanilla pod every time. A good vanilla extract is just more practical and very intense. But these sachets with vanilla sugar are not an alternative for me either, because they are artificial on the one hand and do not taste so intensely like vanilla on the other. Homemade vanilla sugar, on the other hand, is natural, but not always suitable due to the sugar as the main component. This homemade vanilla paste does not contain any preservatives, does not contain any alcohol and is therefore also ideal for children. ♥

So far I've always bought this one Vanilla extract used. I'm actually quite satisfied with the quality, but the price has become so expensive that it is definitely worth making it yourself. Vanilla pods are one of the most expensive spices in the world anyway and have risen significantly in price recently. This is of course also reflected in the price of my previous vanilla extract (and with other brands too). This has risen from around € 17 to a mere € 28! There are also cheaper variants, but these are either not as intense or alcohol-based or very liquid. Liquid vanilla extract has the disadvantage that it changes the consistency of food. This is for example a ganache or mine Nut nougat cream of great disadvantage.

By the way, I have this great and simple recipe on the patisserie blog for French patisseries like those from Paris La Pâticesse found. One of my favorite blogs, maybe you will stop by there. I only changed the recipe very slightly and at the same time adapted it for the Thermomix®. The preparation is very quick and very easy. Why haven't I already done this a long time ago? Making a vanilla extract myself has really been on my to-do list for ages. Here it is now for you too ... ♥

Ingredients

Instructions

Conventional preparation

  1. Just cut off the hard ends of the vanilla pods and then cut the pods into pieces approx. 0.5 cm long and roughly chop them in a powerful mixer.
  2. Put the water, sugar and glucose syrup in a small saucepan and briefly bring to the boil to make a sugar syrup.
  3. Now add the crushed vanilla and briefly bring to the boil again.
  4. Now put the syrup (together with the vanilla pod pieces) in the blender. If necessary, let it cool down a bit beforehand, depending on the mixer.
  5. Mix on a high level until you have a fine paste.
  6. Push everything down with a spatula and mix again vigorously. If necessary, repeat the process again.
  7. Then fill the finished paste into a very clean / sterilized jar, close it and put it in the refrigerator.
  8. After cooling, the paste becomes even more viscous.
  9. Let the aromas develop for a few days.
  10. Store in the refrigerator and always remove the desired amount of vanilla paste with a very clean spoon.
  11. It is best to prepare something delicious in the mixer immediately after making the vanilla paste so that none of the valuable vanilla is lost.

Notes

 

  • Both large vanilla pods are enough for 6 pieces for the recipe.
  • With a pack of 10, the recipe could be made 1.5 times.
  • For normal vanilla pods, please use 8 pieces in any case.
  • The vanilla pods are also a small investment at first, but the vanilla paste is very productive and in the end you get significantly more vanilla extract than in the small bottles you buy.
  • At the current price of vanilla, the homemade vanilla extract costs around half compared to what you buy.

    Hello Sonja!
    Can I swap the glucose syrup for glucose powder? Will I need more water then?

    1. Real glucose syrup is something else, but it shouldn't be a problem, at least not to crystallize like sugar.

      Many greetings,
      Sonja
