Use Lid to Measure Vanilla

When using vanilla or other flavor extracts in a recipe, you can save your measuring spoon and use the lid instead. The lid on every bottle of vanilla I've used for years holds almost exactly 1 tsp. Check yours and see if I'm right!

After you measure into the lid, be sure to wipe it out with a paper towel, or do as I do and just run the lid under water and shake it dry. If you put the lid back on without rinsing or cleaning it, it will stick shut the next time you try to use it.

My late Mother did that with all the flavorings, for as long as I can remember.

That is just too messy for me! I always have my measuring spoons out anyway. :)
