Re: Well...

Instead of buying a big bottle of vodka, what about buying a mini one? Or picking one up the next time you fly somewhere. You won't be able to top it up, but I'm struggling to understand how that works - surely the extract gets weaker the more vodka you add.

Re: Well...

I may try it with a mini bottle of something, yes. (I don't fly anymore.) The idea with topping it off is that a vanilla bean contains more flavor than a small bottle will leach out, so that it can continue exuding flavor for some time.

Re: Well...

Ah, gotcha. That's great you don't fly. I don't know how I can avoid it really... I was a bridesmaid for one of my best friends in Sri Lanka in January, and next Jan I have to go to NZ for my brother's wedding. I'm trying to do 10/10 (cut your carbon footprint by 10% in 2010) and I'll probably do that just by cutting out short-haul flights, but it's more difficult to avoid the long haul ones.
