Measure Vodka into jars. You'll need 4 cups of Vodka per quart jar.
Add 5 split vanilla beans per cup of Vodka. (20 Split Vanilla Beans per quart jar makes the best vanilla extract. You could use less but the vanilla will be weaker.)
Steep or cure for at least 6 weeks before using.
Bottle the vanilla extract in 4 oz. brown glass bottles. For gift giving you can add 1 vanilla bean to each.
