Make Your Own Extracts for Cooking and Gift Giving
Good quality extracts can make such a difference in cooking! Baking sugar cookies? Vanilla is wonderful, but add some almond extract and now you really have a special treat. Or a touch of orange extract in the frosting on a chocolate cake. Pure extracts can be pricey, but you can easily make them at home for a lot less. Package them in attractive jars, and you have a unique item for gift giving.
