Give your cakes, creams, creme brûlées, ice cream and other tasty bakes a real gourmet and authentic feel using real vanilla bean pods.
Handpicked with love from the best crops in the Paradise Islands of Indonesia, these premium vanilla beans are dark brown in colour, rich in flavour and have a wonderful aroma.
Vanilla planifolia is a species of vanilla orchid that is native to Mexico. Due to their high vanillin content, these pods is one of the most used sources for vanilla flavouring.
These vanilla beans are grade-A, meaning they have a higher moisture content (25-35%) than grade-B, and have a richer vanillin content (1.7 - 2.2%). This gives the pods a lovely plump, more pliable feel than grade-B.
Vanilla beans are perfect for a variety of recipes, including homemade vanilla extract, baking, cooking and brewing.
These vanilla pods are available in packs of two or packs of 10.
✔ Sustainably sourced.
Using a sharp knife, carefully split the pods lengthways to expose the vanilla seeds. Gently scrape the seeds out and use as directed in your recipe.
Once you have scraped out the seeds, try placing the empty vanilla pods in a few cup fulls of sugar for a deliciously soft hint of vanilla!
