I decided to start making Vanilla. I found vanilla beans on sale on Amazon a few weeks ago and have been looking for bottles to use. I found these cute bottles at TJ Maxx today. The one with the selvage tied to it is made with Vodka and the other one has rum. When I went to the package store, the clerk told me that he has a customer who always makes vanilla with rum so I decided to try both to see of there is a difference.
I have been reading about how many beans to add to each bottle. I started with four beans in each but since I have a few more beans I think I am going to add one more to each bottle. I hope to have good vanilla by the holidays.
