I started my first batch of vanilla extract in May, hoping to give some as holiday gifts. I threw it together based on tips from the Chowhound posts: Basically, it's a ton of good-quality vanilla beans, all split in half, and upper-middle-grade vodka, stored in a dark cabinet and shaken weekly for 6 months now.
And it still smells and tastes way too boozy. I couldn't use it in recipes.
Any suggestions for salvaging it?
