Sweetly scented with distinctive fruity characteristics, Heilala Vanilla Pure Vanilla Paste is full of distinctive dark vanilla seeds.
Made with vine ripened Heilala Vanilla Tongan Madagascar bourbon vanilla beans, each vanilla bean is grown with integrity and hand-selected by local Tongan farmers.
This vanilla bean paste is made by carefully blending three-month cold extracted pure vanilla bean extract with vanilla bean seeds. Heilala vanilla bean paste provides exceptional concentrated vanilla aroma and flavor.
1 teaspoon of vanilla bean paste provides the flavor and seed equivalent of 1 whole vanilla bean.
Very rich vanilla flavor! I love this product
I started using this when I wanted to add more dimensions to my flan. This did the trick, smooth , creamy custard with a vanilla overtone that is delicious.
I bought this to replace the vanilla beans that I use every year to make my hubby's vanilla bean cheesecake and its a great replacement.
Flavor very good, but this is NOT straight vanilla bean paste, it's in a suspension and has sugar added. It's reasonably priced for that reason, IMO. So if you want straight paste this isn't the right one. It works great in my oatmeal for a strong vanilla flavor.
The alcohol is overpowering....I think it needs to be used for baking only...the alcohol will evaporate. I wish I hadn't bought this.
