I was at my friend Danny's house a couple weeks ago and I saw a bottle filled with homemade vanilla extract. What! So of course I wanted to give it a try. Now all I need to do it wait...8 weeks...
3 vanilla beans sliced down the middle
1 cup vodka
-Combine Vodka and Vanilla Beans in container / jar
-Cover the jar and let stand for 6-8 weeks in a cool dark place
-Shake mixture several times a week. The mixture will turn amber colored
-You can continue to add more Vodka as the extract becomes used.
