Today's Photo

Pure vanilla extract is ridiculously expensive here (when you can find it) and the imitation stuff is just nasty.

So a liter of vodka, a few vanilla beans (split and scraped) and a few weeks in the cupboard (shaken once a week) and we'll have some home-made of the good stuff.

This is 2 1/2 weeks after I made it. The longer it sits the darker it gets. I'm thinking another 2 1/2 weeks until I can bake with it.
