- 8 oz Quality Vodka
- 7-8 Vanilla Beans
- A tall, glass jar
Slice each vanilla bean in half lengthwise to reveal inside of beans. If the beans are too long to fit in your glass jar you can cut them shorter.
Place your split beans in a glass jar and pour alcohol over them. Cap the jar tightly and shake gently.
You'll want to place this mixture tore in a cool, dark place for at least eight weeks, making sure to shake it once a week. The photos you see above and below depict my vanilla extract that has been stored for just over 2 months. Ideally, your extract will sit extracting for 6-12 months in order to attain the optimal flavor.
