Vanilla Beans have a distinct vanilla flavour and are superb in baking.
Vanilla bean is one of the most expensive spices on the planet and in some areas farmers tattoo the beans to stop theft. Vanilla is the only fruit bearing member of the orchid family and it takes 18 months to grow and dry out a vanilla bean. The bean is sweated, dried and turned over each day by hand to allow it to caramelize in the sun. The pods are then stored for 5-6 months in closed boxes where the wonderful fragrance develops. We source our vanilla bean from Madagascar.
Heavily aromatic, adding a fragrant sweet taste, Vanilla Beans complement custard, puddings, cakes and sauces.
