Vanilla Extract

Slit a fresh vanilla bean lengthwise to expose the seeds, then insert it into a small jar containing approx. 1 cup brandy or cognac. Bend the bean, if neccessary, to immerse it in the liquid. Cover the jar and let it sit at room temperature for at least 2 weeks or as long as several years.
