How To Make Tahitian Vanilla Honey

Homemade Tahitian Vanilla honey is (almost) too easy to make! In fact, if honey’s not quite your thing, you can use agave nectar.

  • 1 cup honey
  • 1 Tahitian vanilla bean*

  • With a sharp paring knife, split the bean lengthwise and scrape out the seeds, a.k.a. vanilla caviar.
  • Stir the vanilla seeds into the honey, reserving the spent bean for another use.**
  • Seal the jar tightly and wait a week or so before using.

Homemade Tahitian Vanilla honey makes a great Do-It-Yourself gift. A cute little container, some festive ribbon and you’ve got a sweet gift for your favorite tea drinker in just minutes. We found our adorable (and affordable) little jars online from Weck.

Don’t forget to buy your premium Tahitian vanilla beans!

*Note: Tahitian vanilla beans are larger, more moist and more plump than other beans. If you can’t use Tahitian vanilla beans, then use 2-3 times as many of the other types of vanilla beans.
