Today I decided to experiment with making my own vanilla extract.  I had all the ingredients and was feeling adventurous, so why not?

I filled an old wine bottle with vodka, added 12 split vanilla beans, and corked it.  Simple enough, right?  I'll let you know how it works out in 2 months!

How cool! I've never seen anyone make vanilla extract before. I can't wait to see how it goes!

My mother in law did that a few years ago and it made so much that I got to enjoy the fruits of her labors with my own vial of extract. Actually, it made so much that my father in law said that if I was good, someday I could inherit it. haha.

How did your vanilla extract turn out? I just had to try it too, but mine isn't ready yet it is almost ready just a few more weeks.
