Making Vanilla Extract [Split from Quebec board]

Buy the others to tide you over, but the best thing you can do is make your own! It's so easy. Get a bottle of vodka, and a few vanilla beans (I get one each of the Tahitian and Bourbon beans). Take two clean, sealable containers. Carefully slice each bean and strip the tiny seeds into the pot, then add the pods. Cover with vodka and stick in a dark corner for a minimum of eight weeks. The longer it ages, the better it will be!
