      Title: Home-made vanilla extract
 Categories: Vanilla, Gift, Holiday
      Yield: 6 Servings
 
      2    Whole vanilla beans
  1 1/2 c  Vodka (the cheap-o stuff
           -works just fine)
    1/2 c  Water
      1 c  Granulated sugar
 
  Anyone interested in a recipe for home-made vanilla extract?  It
  makes a fun gift for Christmas, packaged in a small jar with ribbon
  around neck, included recipe for same, a bag of brownie or cookie mix
  which requires vanilla and a brownie pan.  It IS alcohol-based.
  Perhaps someone has another recipe for one that does not require
  alcohol? Could this be one of those "chemistry" things again?  I
  apologize for typing this in as I still haven't made friends with my
  software but folks who know how to doctor it to adapt to their recipe
  pgm. will find it a tasty and CHEAP, CHEAP, CHEAP Holiday idea.
  Better start it now, though! It takes about 7 weeks to "steep" it but
  you can fudge a little on that timing, I'm sure.
  
  VANILLA EXTRACT
  
  In a 3 cup glass container with a tight fitting lid, combine vanilla
  beans with the vodka.  Cap and allow to "steep" at room temperature
  for three weeks.  Remove vanilla beans and strain liquid through a
  cheesecloth, if necessary.  In a medium saucepan, combine water and
  sugar, stirring constantly, until it comes to a boil and sugar
  dissolves. Remove from heat and cool.  Stir into vodka that has been
  strained. Pour mixture into a bottle; cap and allow to sit at room
  temperature one month. Yield:2 cups vanilla extract
