Personal Notes:
the cheapest way to get vanilla beans is online at any specialty goods e-store. problem is you usually have to buy a pack with thirty of so beans. this is the best way to use your own fresh bean whenever you want, and not have to worry about your beans going bad from sitting on the shelf for too long.
