This is by far the best Vanilla Extract I have ever used. I have been using this product for many-many years.
Vanilla meaning ”little pod” coming from the Spanish word ”vaina”. This lovely plant comes from regions like the Mexico area, Madagascar, South Pacific, West Indies, Central and South America. Those contain different species and varieties of Vanilla. If you are interested, read more on: Huffington Post and Vanilla – Wikipedia which explains more about the origins for this lovely ingredient.
The intensity of Vanilla is amazing and strong and makes any baked good taste delightful. I use it in many of my recipes. Another one that is amazing; especially in custards and ice creams are the Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Bean Paste. This lovely paste has a strong Vanilla taste with specks of vanilla. The measurements for extract and paste are the same which makes it easy to convert in any recipe calling for Vanilla.
Nielsen-Massey have other flavours for extracts and pastes and if you are not using it already and looking for a great brand go on the Nielsen-Massey website to learn more.
Which ever Vanilla Extract you use, they are all such a great staple in the kitchen. The lovely aroma of Vanilla is almost calming and the use of it is so versatile. It can be used in the kitchen and even in cosmetics and body care. What an amazing product!
