Make your own Vanilla extract. Slice the Vanilla beans in half and scrape Vanilla bean specs. Place the Vanilla Specs and split Vanilla beans in the bottle and add alcohol of your choice. Make sure it's 70proof or higher for the best results!!! (Vodka, Rum, Bourbon) Shake the bottle weekly and after 1 month you are ready to create your own desserts with your homemade Vanilla extract!!!
