Homemade Vanilla...

I don't know about you, but I love vanilla. 
Let's make some... 

Split 3-6 beans in half.
I did five.

Mason jars..

Split beans in mason jars...

Fill jar with vodka.
Now, I know some of you may have trouble parting with your vodka - after all, it 'tis the holidays.
But there is always rum, so just get over it.

And, if you need any more convincing to part with your vodka, look at the happy gift idea you can do with your homemade vanilla. 
Ahh, now I have your attention!
The vanilla needs to sit for about two months, and then, when it starts to run low, you just top it up with more vodka.
I'm keeping this one - so don't expect to see it under your tree.
