    Can hardly wait to make this! Do you know what the shelf life is for this?

    I'm so glad you posted this recipe! I had resigned myself to using vanilla essence in all the recipes that call for extract since I avoid alcohol for religious reasons...but your recipe is a lifesaver! I made a batch and let it sit for 45 days before straining it. My first test recipe was Recipe #153756 which I had made earlier using vanilla essence. It turned out so much better this time! I've bought more glycerin to make another batch today....Thanks a lot for posting, Ransomed by Fire!
