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.
When I was looking for vanilla beans, I came across this jar of paste and thought how convenient but what about the taste. I am used to using extract and whole beans for special desserts. This paste was the best of both! With as much as I cook, this should last me awhile. Highly recommend.
Great paste at a great value, what's not to love? And I can actually fit a spoon into the jar - the tiny grocery store jars were impractically small-mouthed.
I've been hooked since I saw cloudykitchen use this paste and got my own jar. I started off with the tiny jar because I didn't really know what I was getting. Now, I can't bake without it. This enhances any item that calls for vanilla extract and omg when you make a whipped cream or custard cream with this stuff. Dead. It's SO good. Get this. The big jar of it is so worth it, esp during a sale!
As if the sourcing and story of this vanilla wasn’t enough, the flavor of this vanilla paste is impeccable. It’s gorgeous in baked goods, but also in whipped cream, icing, and even drinks.
I used this for the first time just earlier this year. Loved it so much had to come back for the large bottle. I’ve always got compliments on my pound cake but using this vanilla paste even makes it better and enhanced more with the seeds speckled thru out the cake. Everything I use it in taste better.
Heilala Vanilla Paste is made with real vanilla seeds suspended in pure concentrated Vanilla Extract resulting in a conveniently spoonable paste perfect for ice cream, shortbread, and panna cotta.
