The recipe is very easy .
1 cup vodka ( Has to been gain base . You can not use potato )
Slice your beans lengthwise ,then cut in half. add to your cup of Vodka.
Place in a cool dark place. I use my closet. Shake once a day.
Can be used as early as 3 months. I found leaving it 6 to 7 months make the taste more intense.
I use a pint canning jar and 10 beans. I place the beans ( after they are cut) in the jar and add Vodka to the top. Leaves a little room so you can shake it.
This is so worth the time. Start today and you can have world class vanilla by next Christmas.You can also make and give it this Christmas with the directions and recipe. Just make sure they know not to use it for 3 months. Believe me they won't care for the taste if they try to use it right away.
