Nothing equals the complex aroma and dark, robust flavor of vanilla. Our vanilla beans are hand harvested and sun cured to provide unsurpassed quality.
Bourbon vanilla has the familiar vanilla flavor we have come to know and love in ice cream and chocolate.
Vanilla is a great way to add extra depth of flavor to your chocolate. One vanilla bean will easily flavor 5 lbs of chocolate. A little bit will go a long way.
To use one, just split the bean lengthwise and let it steep in any additional cocoa butter you are adding to your chocolate for about 30 minutes. Scrape the seeds out and you are ready to add the cocoa butter to your chocolate. You can also just add the seeds direct to the chocolate in the refiner.
