DIY: Vanilla Extract

Last night I decided to make some homemade vanilla extract. I found instructions online which stated 1 cup of vodka to 3 split vanilla beans. I had four beans on hand so I upped the vodka (Belvedere, it's all we had) to 1 1/3 cups. I placed the labeled mason jar in the pantry and made weekly entries on my calendar as a reminder to shake to bottle once a week for the next 6 to 8 weeks. We'll see how it turns out! Stay tuned...
