Homemade Vanilla...

I am trying my hand at homemade takes 2-3 months to sit but hopefully it should turn out...
Here are the EASY directions:
Homemade Vanilla
1 glass bottle of Vodka (750ml)
8 vanilla beans split in half (I ordered at Azure Standard co-op)

Pour out about a capful out of the vodka and stick the vanilla beans into
the jar. Put somewhere cool and dark, for 2-3 months and then use.. Leave
the beans in the jar while using so it will continue to get more vanilla
flavor or pour into smaller glass bottles and give as christmas gifts...

Will post pics in a month or so to show how it is doing....
