1 cup

TIME
Active Prep: 10 min

INGREDIENTS

Add all Savory items to cart

NOTES

Try infusing different vanilla beans into different alcohol bases. We like to pair Tahitian beans with vodka, Madagascar beans with bourbon, and Mexican beans with light or dark rum.



DIRECTIONS

Make a long slit down the middle of each vanilla bean, exposing the seeds. Cut beans in half and place in a clean, sealable 8 oz. jar. Pour alcohol of choice over the beans to cover. Seal and let sit for at least one month. Shake the jar every few days to assist the infusion process. 



SERVING SUGGESTIONS

Use in any recipe calling for vanilla extract.
