homemade vanilla extract

raj1 | May 16, 2003 12:50 PM

Has anyone out there made their own vanilla extract by steeping vanilla beans in alcohol? I'm trying this at home in small batches with whiskey (from a Damon Lee Fowler book) and with vodka ( a la Ina Garten). What methods have you used and how successful have they been? Where do you get your vanilla beans? I got mine from Penzey's. Any recommendations and suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
