Vanilla Extract

You just have to love it when things go as planned. I had this thought when I realised vanilla pods only came in two pod packets for heaps, that my cheap home-made gifts weren't going to be Cheap.

 Lucky I do not rest until I have find another option. Along came vanilla masters they were really helpful and vanilla for extract was really reasonable.

So many beans, I am no bean pod expert, but from previous pods these were really full.

Vodka, need I say more.

This is just after I have filled the bottles, I ended up topping them with a sugar syrup. 

In the cupboard for the long wait, two whole months.

A shake up once a day, the colour is really starting to darken.
