Vanilla Extract

I went to the Cleveland Food Show this fall, and it always makes me want to cook even more and try new things. I tried this, to make my own vanilla extract. It was cool to be able to make something that will end up being an ingredient in future recipes. This came in a kit, but you could easily buy vanilla beans yourself to make vanilla extract.

-1 cup vodka
-5 vanilla beans

Clean the vanilla beans.
Cut a slit through the middle of each bean.
Fill a bottle with the vodka.
Let the vanilla sit for 6 weeks,
shaking it every few days.

I'll be using this in more blog recipes soon!
