Vodka + Vanilla beans
It's the start of vanilla extract!
I've been meaning to get this started for awhile. I bought some vanilla beans but not enough so my friend Amanda sent me more. Joel went and bought the vodka for me. Then I realized that I didn't have an appropriate container to start it in. I wanted an 8oz container and ended up finding a maple syrup bottle that was perfect. Today I finally stopped procrastinating. I pulled the label off of the bottle and then boiled it to sterilize it. After that I poured the vodka in the bottle, cut up the vanilla beans and added them to the bottle. Now I just have to wait.
