1 glass swing top type bottle
8 oz food-grade Glycerin
5 Mexican Whole Vanilla Beans
Cut the vanilla beans in half lengthwise with a sharp knife. Depending on the bottle you use, you can leave them long or cut them in half.
Use a funnel to fill your bottle half way with Glycerin.
Add the beans into the bottle.
Top the bottle off with more glycerin until the beans are submerged in liquid.
Close the bottle. Allow the vanilla to sit in a cool dark place for at least 3 months before using.
*Note: If you prefer, you can use Vodka or Rum if your unable to find glycerin. It will only take 2 weeks to be ready. It's not alcohol free but it is a quick and easy way to prepare.
