DIY: Vanilla extract edition

Super easy and I hear it's way better tasting than the store bought variety.

Your supplies: vanilla beans
vodka and a container

Split your beans down the middle.  I also
cut them in half to fit my container.

Measure one cup of vodka plus 2 tablespoons.

Pour the cup of vodka over your vanilla beans in
your container.  Knock back the remaining 2 tablespoons when
your kids aren't looking.

Let cure for a couple months.
It'll get darker and richer in flavor.
