"Vanilla extract" usually isn't made with real vanilla. The good news is that it's really easy--and affordable--to make your own.

 Minutes to Prepare and Cook

Number of Servings: 48


Ingredients

    2 vanilla beans
    8 ounces vodka

Directions

Split the vanilla beans in half lengthwise. Scrape the seeds from the bean using a knife, and place both the seeds and the beans in a glass jar with a lid. Warm the vodka to 100-120 degrees Fahrenheit. Pour the warmed vodka over the beans and allow to cool to room temperature. Once cooled, seal the jar. Store at room temperature for one week, shaking the jar every other day. Strain the mixture, then store in a sealed container. Flavoring will keep for a year, but chances are you'll use it up before then.
Makes 48 one teaspoon servings.

Number of Servings: 48

Interesting.  I just bought some homemade vanilla  with the key ingredient as bourbon.  It is so strong!  I'll have to try this one after it is gone.
