In a medium saucepan, combine the water and sugar over medium heat.Bring to a boil, stirring constantly until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and cool. Stir into vanilla mixture. Pour mixture into a bottle; cap and allow to sit at room temperature 1 month. Yield: 2 cups of extract. Use as you would store bought vanilla. Posted to JEWISH-FOOD digest by "Marianne Meisels"
