Re: Banana Vanilla Rum

Arizona Vanilla Company ...
They are inexpensive and very good! Very Fresh...
I prefer the Mexican Vanilla Beans over Madagasgar or Tahitian or Hawaiian or any others...
The Mexican beans are larger and have a stronger flavor... and are very moist, great for making the rum...

After my own tweaking...
when I make the MaDouDou Banana/Vanilla I change the ingredients a little...
First, I use Mt. Gay Rum rathe than Meyers...
I cut down on the water by a cup and use Light Brown Sugar instead of white sugar...
and, if I can find, them I use some of those little "Baby Bananas"...

and I add the split vanilla beans to the water then I heat it to dissolve the sugar...


1.5 liter bottle of Mt. Gay rum.
2 vanilla beans (split lengthwise)
4 baby bananas (two for each bottle)
one empty 1.5 liter bottle (dark glass if possible)
4 cups water
1 packed cup Light Brown Sugar

I also use a split vanilla bean to make Vanilla Sugar...
Just fill a Mason Jar with white sugar, insert a a split vanilla bean... wait about two weeks...
YUMMMMMM!!! It's great for Hot Tea... or making cornbread! many other uses also...
