I’ve wanted to make vanilla for a long time.  Recently, I read a post about it and decided that it was a good time to order some beans and start some for holiday gifts.

Stephen volunteered to slice the vanilla beans open.


They were put into a 1/2 gallon canning jar.  Vodka was added.


We make 2 jars worth and it’s sitting in our canned cupboard.


We’re supposed to give it a shake every once in a while.  Hopefully at the end of the year, we’ll have great vanilla to use as gifts.
