Have you seen the prices of vanilla beans lately?

Been running low on vanilla extract the past few months. Have been planning to buy some more Madagascar beans and start making a new batch, but these prices have been INSANE, so I've kept putting it off.

I wonder how much longer this stretch of bad crops is going to last.

Luckily, I was digging around in the back of the freezer yesterday and found a couple of stashes of vanilla beans from last year that I had completely forgotten about! I had to post this on Chowhound because I know this is one community that might understand just how I felt when I found those beans!
