Peppermint Extract

A while ago I saw a post on Sensible Living about making your own peppermint extract. I decided I had to try it this year. Last year I just hung my mint to dry and used it in tea but it would be nice to have some more diverse options for using all the mint from the yard.
You just take clean fresh mint leaves and bruise them a bit in the bottom of a jar. Then pour in enough vodka to cover all the leaves. Let sit for a month or so.
I'm really hoping this works out because this will be perfect for all my holiday baking that's coming up!
