Homemade Vanilla Extract!

Fill a bottle with a split vanilla bean and vodka/rum/bourbon of your choice (no need to use anything expensive) and steep for a month... so simple! I think I actually spent more time on making the labels.  Vodka results in the purest vanilla flavour but the one made with bourbon is by far my favourite.

I always have a couple of vodka bottles hidden around the house so I think I'll give this a whirl.

I used to keep mini ones in my fish tank as decoration.
