MAY 2012 THE VANILLA BEANS ARE CURED AND READY TO SELL! This year's crop is producing many flowers but the pollination success rate isn't up to par. There is plenty of rain right now but the vines really suffered from the prolonged drought.
Price of two vanilla beans: $8.25, plus $1.25 for shipping and handling

HOMEMADE VANILLA EXTRACT|
Split two vanilla beans lengthwise. Place in a bottle containing one cup of vodka. Store in a cool, dark place for at least four weeks. Shake the bottle a few times a week. You can leave the beans in the extract to let it get more intensely flavored, or remove the vanilla beans and use them in other recipes.
You can flavor your morning coffee by chopping up an inch of vanilla bean and putting it with the coffee grounds when you prepare your coffee.
Vanilla beans or vanilla extract also add great flavor to salad dressings.
