  1. Using a sharp pointed knife or kitchen shears, cut each bean in half and then split in half lengthwise leaving about an inch still connected.  If beans are too dry to split, cut them into 1 inch pieces.
  2. Place the vanilla beans in a pint size Mason jar.  Add roasted ground cacao beans, cinnamon sticks, or coconut flakes depending on what flavor you are making.  Pour in vodka, leaving 1 inch of headspace.  Top with a canning lid and ring and barely tighten (also known as fingertip tight).
  3. Add 1 cup of water to the pressure cooker pot and place trivet inside.  Put the Mason jar on the trivet.  Secure the lid and turn pressure release knob to a sealed position.  Cook at high pressure for 30 minutes.
  4. When cooking is complete, unplug the pressure cooker and use a full natural release.  Do not quick release the pressure!
  5. Carefully remove the Mason jar, tighten the lid, and swirl it lightly to release more vanilla seeds from the pod.  Place on a cooling rack overnight.
