It's going to depend on what you are making. If you are doing something where you can scrape the seeds from the pod and steep the pod I'd do 1 vanilla bean per 2 tsp. extract. If you are only able to incorporate the seeds I'd do 1 vanilla bean per tsp. extract.

A lot of times there's a little equation on the label.
