that is good for gift giving too.
Homemade Vanilla Extract
2-3 whole vanilla beans, split
1 cup quality vodka
Add the above to a capable bottle. Put in a cool, dark place for 4-6 weeks, shaking occasionally.
Ta da...you're done. How easy was that?
Look here for a more instructions with pictures (ooooohhh, pictures!). Or you could just totally ignore this, run to chinamart and get a dozen bottles of the under $1 imitation stuff.
REALLY late ETA here: You can just pour you a drink out of the bottle (I prefer screwdrivers myself) and pop about 6 (3 for a small bottle) of those loverly vanilla pods in there then recap it and put it away, mourning the loss of your booze. But if you are a true prepper, there is no loss because there is another bottle or more in the pantry.
