I cut the three vanilla beans down the middle as best I could. Careful to not scrap out the 'innards' as we say in Virginia.
Then I placed them all in the bottle.
Then poured on the vodka baby!! In 4 weeks it'll be the best tasting vanilla extract you can get. I have to keep it in a dark place and shake it from time to time and viola! I'll post a picture when it's ready. I'm excited. Plus, what a money saver. Real, true vanilla extract is EXPENSIVE. This will last years if I do it right and keep the beans covered.
Footnote: Leisha when you read this I know you're going to want one and do this too. That is if you don't already have one. Let me know and I'll let you know where to get them from or order one for you, my sister in green. :)
