30 Days of DIY- Day 1 Homemade Vanilla Extract

I'm going to start doing 30 Days of DIY projects. Today I'm going to show you how to make Homemade Vanilla Extract. None of that artificial flavoring stuff, this is the REAl deal. And it's so easy it's not even funny. The only thing is...it takes time! I don't have pictures of the process yet, I'm waiting on a chance to go to the liquor store sans children to buy some vokda!

What you need:
1 cup Vodka (the cheap stuff works fine)
3 Vanilla Beans
Glass Jar with a tight fitting lid, it MUST BE GLASS! Don't use plastic!

Split the vanilla beans down the middle with a sharp knife or roughly chop them and put into your jar. Cover beans with vodka and seal the jar. See it's easy as that, all the hard work is done.

Label your jar so no one uses it and add a date somewhere so you know when it'll be ready. Give your jar a good shake every once in a while and let sit for 2 months at least before using!

I found the original recipe here!

    Perhaps there is a means you are able to remove me from that service?
