A Mason jar (or other tightly-sealing glass jar)
Vanilla beans (3 beans per 1 cup of vodka)
Using a knife, split each vanilla bean in half, leaving about a 1/2-inch at each end intact.
Place split vanilla beans in glass jar and completely cover with vodka. Remember: for every cup of vodka, you'll need at least three vanilla beans.
Tightly seal your jar and shake vigorously. Place in a cool, dark place for at least two months. Shake occasionally.
As you use your vanilla extract, simply refresh it by adding a new vanilla bean and vodka.
