Vanilla infusion

Soop | Jan 15, 2009 03:25 AM

I'm getting 50 vanilla pods through the mail, and I thought a great use would be to infuse some alcohol. I've heard you can make vanilla extract with vodka, though I'm not quite sure how it works.

Can someone tell me:
How many pods to put in? I've heard between 4 and 10
What goes best? I like Sailor Jerry's, so I was thinking dark rum, maybe some brandy?
How the vanilla extract thing works

The beans are 15-17cm btw. Thanks in advance!
