Vanilla Glyceride

This was found at Bulk Herb Store.  I didn't know that you could use glycerine as a base for a tincture!  It is sweet and would make a great flavoring or if used to tincture herbs would be more palatable.  Glycerine can also be used to sweeten foods but doesn't raise the blood sugar like other sweeteners.  It is also sweeter than sugar so must be tasted as you are cooking to be sure of the sweetness.

Here is a great recipe I found!
16 ounces food-grade vegetable glycerine
8 Vanilla Beans

Instructions

Pour the vegetable glycerine into the glass bottle.
Cut the vanilla beans in half lengthwise. Use the sharp edge of your knife to scrape the seeds away from the bean pods.
Add the seeds and bean pods to the vegetable glycerine.
Cap bottle and put in a dark place to steep for 6 weeks.
If desired, add additional vanilla bean pods to the vegetable glycerine as you use them in your kitchen.
4oz Amber Tincure Bottle.
