How To Make Vanilla Extract
You'll need alcohol. Use Vodka for pure vanilla flavor. I like bourbon. You can use whiskey too. You'll also need vanilla beans and a mason jar.
1
Measure 2 cups of alcohol and set aside.
2
You'll need 5 whole vanilla beans.
3
Slice down the length of each vanilla bean with a small sharp knife.
4
Place vanilla beans in mason jar.
5
Add the alcohol to the jar.
6
Store in airtight jar for at least 12 weeks to allow vanilla beans to infuse. Shake occassionally. The longer the vanilla sits, the better it will be.
7
I'll update this video as this batch continues to steep over the next few weeks. Look forward to more pictures and updates.

Update #1 12.30.20 The vanilla has been sitting for about a month and you can see it's starting to darken. Remember to occassionally shake your jar.
Update #2 for 2/1/21. We are at 2 months and the alcohol is becoming more opaque as the vanilla is becoming more concentrated.
Update #3, week 12. The vanilla is ready to use! Move it into another container. You can reuse the beans 2 more times before you will need new beans.
