If you love the aroma and taste of vanilla, but have never tried whole vanilla beans then you are in for a real treat! Vanilla beans are more fragrant and robust than extracts and top grade vanilla beans are bursting with a deep aroma. Use with apples, eggs, fish, ice cream, melon, milk, peaches, pears and strawberries. Vanilla Beans works well in combination with cardamom, chili, cinnamon, cloves, allspice, apples, basil, black pepper, cardamom, chocolate, citrus, coriander, dates, fennel, ginger, mint, pears, pineapple, pomegranate, tarragon, and thyme.
