Materials: 1 qt vodka
1 qt mason jar empty and cleaned
24 vanilla beans (I used organic)
First you will cut the vanilla beans in half, leaving the top 1/2 inch uncut.
Put all the beans in the mason jar.
Add the vodka. You will then sit it in a dark spot and leave it sit for 4-6 months.
Take the vanilla once completed and put it in amber jars to use for baking.
It was well worth the wait!! Tasted so yummy. I let mine steep for 5 months and it was perfect.
I put another quart of vodka in with my vanilla beans to see if I can get another batch out of it, so we will see!! I figure I have enough vanilla to last a year, so it can steep that entire time.
