Cinnamon & Vanilla Bean Scented Honey

2 whole vanilla beans
8 cinnamon sticks
2 quarts raw honey

1. Cut vanilla beans in half and split the halves lengthwise.  Scrape out the seeds and mix them with the honey in a large saucepan.
2. Stirring constantly, bring the honey just to a boil.
3. Wash and sterilize eight - 8oz canning jars.  Place a cinnamon stick and a 1/4 of a vanilla bean in each jar.  Fill with hot honey, wipe rim, seal with lid and ring.
4.  Process for 25 minutes in a boiling water bath.  Remove lid from water bath, turn off heat, and allow the jars to rest for 5 minutes.  Place jars on a clean towel and allow to cool 12-24 hours.  Wipe jars clean and store in a cool, dark place.

Yield:  eight 8oz jars (plus some extra)
