Making Vanilla Extract

A couple of moths ago I bought a bottle of vodka and 50g of vanilla beans from here, split the beans lengthwise with a knife (but not all the way), and put them in the bottle of vodka.  I had to tip out some of the vodka so the beans would fit in.  Then put the lid back on the vodka, and shake it a little, put it in the pantry where you ideally shake it a little everyday for 2 months.  If you remember.  Today I bottled it into old maple syrup bottles to make it easier to pour.  Vanilla extract- too easy!
