2 items left

Description

Gourmet grade, whole vanilla beans. Dark skinned, soft and pliable, with a rich aroma. 6 pods per pack.


Impossible to mimic, this pure vanilla has over 200 elemental chemicals, the main compound being vanillin. Madagascan vanilla has three times as much vanilla, giving it a superior taste & fragrance - which is why it has such a fine reputation.

This vanilla is cured naturally - a process that can takes weeks, then the beans are left for months to fully develop this flavour.

Use the beans whole or split them to get more flavour from the thousands of seeds inside the pods. They will keep indefinitely in a cool, dark place in an airtight container (don't refrigerate).

Vanilla is a fascinating plant, which involves special labour intensive methods of cultivation to get the benefits from its unmistakable aroma and flavour, hence the high price tag. It naturally pairs with chocolate – did you know vanilla is often planted with cacao on the plantations, as the two grow synergistically, the vanilla vine winding round the cacao tree? Vanilla comes from the orchid family, and it is the most popular natural flavouring on the planet.

How To Use

Cut up into small pieces and blend in to your recipe.

Add to milks, chia puddings, raw chocolate recipes and raw chocolate cakes. Vanilla pods are very potent, use 1 pod for 4 servings.

To preserve the exquisite fragrance of the vanilla, store it in an airtight bag or container. We recommend double sealing it, i.e. put it in a resealable bag, and then put the bag in a container with an airtight lid.
