Vanilla Extract, hard core

A cheaper way to get your vanilla extract was introduced to me by a wwoofing host in Tennessee. She reached up into her cupboard to proudly haul down a handle of vodka with a vanilla bean sitting in it. She said it cost her 5 bucks, instead of the 10 she’d have spent on a quarter of that amount at the farmers’ market. And if you buy vanilla flavored vodka, you’re half-way there! She let it sit for a few weeks, bringing it down to shake every day or so.
