ID# 389 Vanilla Beans Mexico 6.6oz
Net Wt: 6.6oz (187g)
approx. 30 beans
Vanilla 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 vanilla beans are generally long and slender, with a rich woody 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, then mix well and use! For more vanilla recipes, we recommend the Vanilla Cookbook by Patricia Rain.
