how do I make my own vanilla extract?

AndieCat | Dec 10, 2003 06:52 PM

I bought two vanilla beans (they are long and folded in half), I have vodka. How much vodka should I add to the beans? Should I scrape the beans before pouring the alcohol? How long does it take for the extract to be ready? Is the strength of this homemade potion comparable to the good extract one buys? Thanks!!
