Homemade Vanilla Extract

I actually made my own vanilla extract, and for those of you who know extracts, they're all alcohol. Which means, that yes, I used alcohol to make this. It was quite the experience--going down to the liquor store and all, but I went with a buddy. We bought 100 proof vodka and madagascar vanilla beans, and we were all set. Now we just have to let it sit for a few months. They waiting is the hardest part, though I suppose it will force me to use up what's left of my store bought junk before I can use the really good stuff. I'm excited to use it, but I can wait.
