Whole Vanilla Beans
by Nielsen-Massey (Size—2 x whole vanilla beans)
These select whole vanilla beans are moist, flavourful and aromatic, deliciously ideal for any number of cooking and baking applications. Plus, by scraping the vanilla seeds out of the bean and into such dishes as ice cream, custard and crème brûlée, you can add gourmet visual delight to your culinary creations. One whole vanilla bean is equivalent to approximately one tablespoon of pure vanilla extract, vanilla bean paste, or vanilla powder.
Family-owned Nielsen-Massey Vanillas has been crafting the world's finest vanillas and flavours since its founding in Illinois in 1907. They understand that vanilla tastes best when its natural essence is allowed to shine. That's why they use a proprietary cold extraction process, a long, delicate procedure that protects the vanilla from heat and ensures that even its subtlest flavours survive extraction. They examine each bean to ensure that it meets their high standards and only use beans from the finest growing regions: Madagascar, Mexico, and Tahiti.
