Banana Vanilla Rum
      #1030101 - 07/14/09 01:13 PM (96.228.49.240)

This has gotten lost a couple of times, so I thought I'd post it here. I'm not sure who originally wrote the recipe..Todd, maybe?

Banana Vanilla Rum...from a previous post

1.5 liter bottle of Meyer's dark rum.
2 vanilla beans
2 bananas
one empty 1.5 liter bottle (dark glass if possible)
5 cups water
1 cup sugar (or two if you have a sweet tooth)
heat water and dissolve sugar to make a sugar syrup
split rum equally between the two bottles
split sugar syrup equally between the two bottles
split banana to fit through the neck of the bottle and put one banana in each bottle
split each vanilla bean length wise and put one bean in each bottle
put the bottles on a sunny window ledge and rotate once a day...

And here's the hardest part...wait at least three weeks (longer is better)!!!!

That sounds great! Myers is our favorite, next to Ma Dou Dou, of course

Georgia,
We made this a couple weeks ago... EXCELLENT! KUDOS!
Very close to MaDouDou!

The only thing I changed was I used 4 cups of H2O rather than 5 cups...

Brian, I can't take credit for that recipe. Someone else posted it here a while back, and I just moved it over to this forum as it kept getting deleted from People Talk. I'm not sure whose recipe it was originally..I was thinking maybe Todd had posted it as he's always making homemade alcohol concoctions.

OH yeah... another thing I did differently...
I added the split vanilla beans to the sugar syrup while heating it up...
That infuses the vanilla in the syrup...

I'm hoping to start a batch of this soon--how ripe should the banana be? Green? Yellow? Brown?

Thanks.

Thanks. I received my shipment from Arizona Vanilla on Friday, and you are SO right, the beans are amazingly fragrant and soft. I have a banana at just this stage, so banana vanilla rum, here we come!

Thx
