Don't have to put the vanilla in there. Also my wife often adds other spices like cinnamon, turmeric, ginger etc. Always does put the zest of a whole lemon rind.

Water bath can for 15 min to preserve long term.

Thanks At first I thought a lot of Vanilla was being used
Then I see it's for 8 1/2 cups

1/8 c. is 2 tbsp.
I'm rusty with my measurements .

I know cooking is suppose to break down some of the oxylic acid

Will the Store bought stuff be Okay that is picked under ripe
and full of more oxylic acid for this.

I read something on here By Fruit Lovers that said
you can tell when they are ripe , because the edges turn a certain color
 a certain way t tell if they are ripe.

I think if I remember they should be more yellow
is that correct, and not bright green like in the stores
are those Okay to use ?

I am guessing I would I have to make adjustments w/ Sugar
  if they are more acidic that way, but Would I ?
