The recipe calls for placing vanilla beans in vodka and stashing it away--standard practice, based on my research and experience. However, the recipe recommends using two cups of 80 proof at least vodka and 10-20 vanilla beans and letting it rest for 9 months. Seriously? You're talking a small fortune to make 2 cups of vanilla extract. Google "making vanilla extract" and you'll come up with $15 kits that include 5-7 vanilla beans, a container in which to make the extract and a recipe--like you need one--and a finished product in 8 weeks. I haven't tried them, but plan to. One site, Beanilla, even lets you pick the vanilla beans you want with your kit--personally, I'm a sucker for Ugandan vanilla beans, though they are are not as affordable as they once were. The flavor, however, is bold and smokey. My second choice would be Mexican, since we live in Nicaragua and all vanilla sprang from Mexico and Central America. It took the French, not surprisingly, to develop the modern vanilla industry largely based in Madagascar--and that industry sprang from a local's ingenuity, who developed the process of hand fertilization. The bees that fertilize vanilla in Mexico and Central America don't exist anywhere else.
Bottom line: buy the book but find another vanilla extract recipe--unless you're Donald Trump and have more money than common sense.
