Day two + two months:
I still use mine to this day, recycling vanilla beans and topping it off with vodka as it gets low. Mine currently has the most wonderful deep, rich color from being maintained and refilled. One of my favorite reasons to make homemade vanilla extract is the fact that I get to ever-so-delicately slice vanilla beans and scrape out the seeds. I love having the little black specs on my fingers and leave my hands fragrant like a perfume. If only I could keep the seeds on my hands without looking like there's soot every where.
