|Homemade Vanilla Extract - Sorry my iPhone photography skills are lacking|
1 750 ml bottle of vodka
12 vanilla beans
The picture above is really about 1/2 of the 750 bottle and 6 vanilla beans (because that's all I had available when I started the batch), after 3 weeks. Split the beans down the center, I chopped mine in half also because I am using a pint canning jar that was too short. Place the beans in the vodka, wait 3 weeks. Strain into a clean container, you may add more vodka to the same vanilla beans, I add 1-2 new vanilla beans to the jar too and start a new batch. Enjoy using your vanilla extract!
