1-3 Vanilla Bean’s
12-14oz. Vodka (80-90 proof)
Split your vanilla beans down the middle. Add the vanilla beans to your bottle. The more vanilla you can put in you bottle the better your extract will be. I recommend three vanilla beans for exceptional flavor. Fill your bottle up with your favorite alcohol (ex. vodka, whiskey, rum) I highly recommend vodka due to the fact that it will not add any flavor to the finished extract. Vodka will also turn a dark brown color when completed. After filling your bottle with alcohol be prepared to wait. With three beans inside a twelve ounce bottle you will have a three to four month wait period. After three to four months your extract will be a dark brown color. It is now ready to use. You can still use the same amount inside your recipes (ex. a recipe call for a tsp., use a tsp.). it is just going to make your food taste one hundred percent better. This extract you just made will last for a very long time (10-20 yrs.) but you can still use those beans!
