Easy peasy. Buy some vanilla beans off Ebay, cut them lengthwise, scoop out the soft stuff, cut rest of bean in small pieces and put it all in a mason jar with cheap rum or vodka.
Shake once a day for a week, once a week for a month and once a month for a year. You can start using it very soon after starting but I like to make enough ahead so I am using the aged stuff. It gets dark very quickly.
Amounts? Use more beans if you like it strong less if weak. I pretty much fill up the jar with chopped up beans and fill to top with alcohol. You can use much less.
I like the Tahitian beans but vanilla is like pizza and sex: it's all good just some better than others.
Be very careful. It's addictive stuff. I have it on my oatmeal every morning. French toast, almost anything with milk and on and on............
Make lots. I occasionally give some as gifts and always get the empty jar back if you know what I mean.
