Wo... hold on a sec. When I said store-bought, I wasn't referring to top-quality extract from Tahitian beans. (I have never even seen Tahitian vanilla extract, though I do know a place that sells the Tahitian beans themselves) I was referring to the Club House stuff you get in the grocery store, which I assume use cheaper Madagascar beans. Will my home-made infusion be as good as that? (I used Smirnoff Vodka and Madagascar beans)
In my opinion, no it won't. And the expense is prohibitive.
However, if you look around here I have posted a source for good quality vanilla beans at an excellent price. And their vanilla is good also.
