Vanilla Extract

I could never decide how safe the store bought vanilla and vanilla extract is. So I began to use vanilla beans. My problem was that it really was getting too expensive and so this is my solution. To my delight, it turned out beautifully and has much better flavour (IMHO) than store-bought versions... not to mention, there are no artificial colours or flavours.

750 mL potato vodka (medium bottle)
4 vanilla beans

Put the beans in the bottle. Let it sit for 2 weeks to inifinity. Use where ever vanilla flavour is desired.
