Homemade Vanilla Extract
Making homemade extract is easy with only 2 ingredients - Vodka and Vanilla Beans. The type of vodka doesn't necessarily matter neither does the type of vanilla bean, however, as with anything else, you will get a slightly different flavor depending on the type of bean and vodka.
For every 1 cup of vodka you'll need 3 whole vanilla beans.
Weekly, or when you think of it, shake the bottle. Check it after 2 months. It should smell strongly of vanilla and be dark and slightly syrupy. If it isn't, put it aside for a couple of weeks and continue to shake and check on it.
You can pour it into smaller bottles or keep it in the vodka bottle to use.
