Vanilla planifolia or tahitensis
Papua New Guinea
Net Wt: 3.8-4oz
Approx. 30 beans
beans are the fruit of a tropical orchid. These fruits are cured to ripen and
preserve them, a process that can take up to 3-4 months. Vanilla beans are used
for vanilla extract, vanilla sugar, and dessert flavorings. These Bourbon
vanilla beans are generally long and slender, with a rich taste and smell, and
have thick, oily skin, an abundance of seeds, and a strong vanilla aroma.
Notes and Instructions:
To make vanilla sugar, slit a vanilla bean lengthwise with a knife. Place bean
in an airtight container and cover with 3 cups of granulated sugar. Store for a
minimum of 1 month for sugar to absorb flavor. For more vanilla recipes, we
recommend the Vanilla Cookbook by Patricia Rain.
