The vanilla beans were fresh. I made vanilla ice cream with them. Really yummy.
I ordered these beans online and was SO pleased when I received them! They come in a sturdy glass vial with a secure plastic stopper. The beans are moist, plump, aromatic, and FULL of vanilla aroma and flavor. I used my two beans to make two batches of homemade vanilla extract and it’s been some of the best I’ve ever had. Each bean is quite long and filled with tiny vanilla seeds! Will definitely be ordering again.
Yummy!!! Making vanilla extract with the empty pods
Very pleased with this product and it’s packaging!
It’s been awhile since I ordered fresh vanilla beans. So I was lookin forward to receiving these. I enjoy making my own vanilla extract and these fit the bill. Great quality, they arrived in a small glass vial with a secure sealed lid. Packaged well inside a padded envelope etc. I received 2 large plump vanilla beans that smelled heavenly (you could smell them through the packaging!). Filled with moist vanilla seeds and plenty of flavor. As they are quite long in length, I only used one for my extract, I’m saving the other one for other baking needs
Hand selected at their ripest to develop distinctive flavor and aroma perfect for infusing deep vanilla richness into crème brûlée, ice cream, poached fruit, and curries.
