3 vanilla beans
1 pint vodka
- Slice vanilla beans lengthwise. Scrape inside of pods with a paring knife to remove seeds. Place pods and seeds into a glass bottle.
- Pour vodka into bottle to cover pods. Allow vodka to infuse for one month.
Note: You can also use just pods for the extract and use interior beans for baking.
