Here is the Vanilla recipe you requested.
Also available for everyone!
- Vanilla beans 8
- Light rum 750ml bottle
- Sugar 3/4 cup
- Water 1 cup
- Light Karo 2 Tbsp
Place sugar and water in a pot and bring to a boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat and set aside.
Split all vanilla beans and scrape out seeds inside.
Reserve all in a 1 quart container.
Pour 3 cups rum over vanilla, then pour in 1/2 cup syrup(can be hot, or reserved warm.) then top off with 1/2 cup water.
Cover with a tight fitting lid and store in pantry for at least a week. the longer the better. When you run out, simply repeat the process. The same beans can be used over and over for quite a while!
The remainder of the syrup can be used to sweeten beverages!
The remainder of the rum can be saved for next batch, if it lasts that long:)
Or make some terrific mojitos using all the leftovers!
