I just got a great deal on 1/2 pound of vanilla beans! Now that this culinary loveliness is headed my way, what is the best way to store them?

Amy, it's important to store vanilla beans in an airtight container; you want to keep them from getting dried out. I usually store mine in sealed plastic bags or, if I have a big bunch of them at once, a tightly closed glass jar.
Readers, any tips on storing vanilla beans?
