I am doing the exact same thing right now, only its lemon extract I am making. Just slice the yellow parts off of the lemon peel (Now white just thin slices of yellow) Get as much as you can, and put 1 lemon worth to every 1/2 cup of vodka or something like that. I don't think the quality of the vodka willl affect it that much, since one recipe I found called for adding 50% water to 50% vodka and the peel. I did it more like 10-90 Smiley it has been a few days, and I could not resist opening it and smelling, and there is almost no vodka smell left! I can not wait to try the vanilla, maybe I will give homemade extracts to everyone for christmas next year! Smiley

ok, I bookmarked this so I can see how it turned out!  I hate buying vanilla it's so expensive, I cringe everytime I run out!

I did this but used a light rum that was leftover from making Mohitos. It turned out very nice. I am planning to use some to make a vanilla syrup for coffee as I love vanilla in my coffee.

You can keep on adding vodka as you use the extract for a while, it doesn't water down the intensity.

Another favorite is to put the vanilla beans in sugar.  Voila!  Vanilla sugar for tons of yummy stuff.
