Some ingredients come out of their containers just a little too fast…or a lot too fast. We’re thinking especially of flavored extracts like vanilla or liquid smoke. Here’s a better way to dole out these expensive ingredients.
When your recipe calls for a small amount of vanilla, almond or any other extract (such as liquid smoke, which is strong stuff), don’t risk pouring straight from the extract bottle into your small measuring spoon. Instead use an eyedropper to dribble just the amount you need into your spoon. You can usually find eyedroppers in a medical-supply section of your local drugstore or buy here. Now you can easily extract the exact amount of extract.
