I got my Vanilla beans on eBay (around $10 for 20 beans).
To make your own Vanilla Extract you will need:
30g of Vanilla beans (sliced down the centre to harvest the inner seeds; then chop the beans into 1 inch lengths)..
add this to 1 cup of Vodka
Seal well and shake daily for 1 week or every time you are near the brewing delight.
Here is my home made Vanilla Extract.
