Stuff tons of vanilla beans into a bottle full of vodka and store it in a cool dry place for weeks.

BTW, add some sugar, water and instant coffee and you'll get kahlua.

The extract? That'll probably cost a heck of a lot.

Store vanilla in a covered container. Never had a problem with that. Put some in you sugar and you'll have nice vanilla flavor in your coffee.

BTW, vanilla has surpassed saffron as the most expensive spice sometime early last year.

1. vanilla
2. saffron
3. cardamon

I not 100% sure if cardamon is #3...does anyone know?

Since you have beans...you are going to use 'em in that ice cream maker right?
