Product Overview

Description
  • Vanilla Planifolia
  • Non-Irradiated

It's hard to imagine a kitchen void of vanilla. Its full, rich, universally popular taste and enticing aroma is irreplaceable in cookies, cakes, custards, ice creams-- almost every conceivable sweet-- and a few savory dishes, too.

To use the bean, slice it lengthwise to expose the seeds (which contain most of the fragrance and flavor). Some recipes suggest scraping out the seeds, others direct you to use the whole slit pod. You can also grind the seed for use. To substitute whole beans for vanilla extract, use about one inch of the bean for each teaspoon of the extract.

Native to Mexico, today's main varieties come from Mexico, Madagascar, Reunion Island (Vanilla planifolia) and Tahiti (Vanilla tahitensis). Bourbon beans are from Madagascar.

Suggested Use

Universally popular in desserts--cakes, cookies, puddings, candy, ice cream-- vanilla also adds rich flavor and aroma to many beverages (mulled cider, coffee, tea, lemonade, hot chocolate, warm milk). Try it in sauces, souffles, and in shellfish, chicken, veal and dairy dishes.

By the way...You can use a vanilla bean more than once. Simply rinse and dry it between uses. But don't store your vanilla beans in the refrigerator, because they may mold there; place it in a dry spot. A tasty option is to place your vanilla bean in a small container of sugar. The vanilla bean will lend its flavor and aroma to the sugar.

Amazing product at a great price. The beans arrive fresh and soft and the packaging preserves them that way for a long time. I highly recommend!

Posted by Reviewer2130002 on Jan 09, 2012

this is the first time using vanilla beans, so i can't present review via comparison. anyway, these beans smell good. (warning for novice like me : vanilla beans smell strange when they're first opened. it's normal. they're not rotten or comtanimated! i was somewhat surprised as i didn't know this bit of fact.)
