I put a couple of split beans and everything inside the beans in a fifth of Bacardi light rum.

Is wonderful. We use it in baking where the recipe calls for vanilla. I added some to different wines too.

I too adore the Madagascar vanilla beans

I also make my own vanilla and use about an ounce of beans per 250mL of alcohol.

I love my homemade vanilla extract. Easy; cheaper than grocery; and WAY better. Way!

I also make my own cinnamon extract. Great stuff!

Yup! Easy peasy -- put a couple or three sticks of cinammon in about 8 oz of light (or dark) rum; cap it; let it infuse for a couple of months (shake it every couple of days or so).

It's delicious, and about 4 times as strong as powdered cinnamon, so if a recipe calls for 1 tsp of cinnamon, use 1/4 tsp of extract.

Wow - I'm going to try the vanilla extract too, Thanks! My uncle and I take turns buying & sharing beans from http://www.arizonavanilla.com for a kahula recipe we enjoy. Their prices have been right for us.

Will definitely be making this. I'm guessing this stuff doesn't go bad?

Don't know. I'm using some I put up in 2009 and it's delicious.

Really, all of you that make your own, make some oatmeal with brown sugar, add condensed milk or cream and a healthy splash of your vanilla. It turns oatmeal into a chewy milkshake.

Ok, I'm on it. Where did you get the sticks?
