Homemade Vanilla
December 02, 2009

The longer the beans steep, the better the vanilla will be. Two beans doesn't get much done, even in several weeks. I now use 5 beans (6" bourbon beans) for 2 cups of vodka, and let it steep for a full year (shaking it once a week), which seems kind of extreme, but is well worth the wait, since it gives a lot more body and flavor.
