Madagascar Vanilla Beans take your baking and flavoring to the highest level. Gourmet cooks and bakers know the rich aroma and taste vanilla extract adds to a recipe. But, if you want to take your baking to the next level with the purest vanilla flavor, order Madagascar Vanilla Beans. The tiny flecks characteristic of natural Vanilla Beans come from the seed pods, filled with tiny caviar-like seeds. Our premium moist and fragrant Madagascar Vanilla Beans are bursting with true vanilla flavor.

Our Vanilla Beans, with their distinctive flavor and aroma are imported from Madagascar. The vanilla orchid goes through a pain-staking process that ensures that each cured seed pod produces the fabulous sweet flavor that gourmets chefs love.

How many Vanilla Beans are there in 1/4 lb, 1/2 lb, 1 lb

The vanilla bean counts by weight vary a lot depending on the batch of beans and the time of year. As a general rule, 1/4 lb has 23-27 beans included, 1/2 ln has 45-55 beans and 1 lb can have 90-110 vanilla beans included depending on the time of the year. 

Note: Actual counts of beans by weight vary widely from batch to batch.  If you require a specific count of beans we recommend that you choose one of the specific bean count options (5,10, 16, 25, 50 beans).  

How to Use a Vanilla Bean

When your cake or ice cream recipe calls for one teaspoon of vanilla extract, try substituting one vanilla bean. You can also use whole beans and seeds to make  your own delicious vanilla sugar. Cover rinsed and dried vanilla beans in 2 cups of granulated or confectioner's sugar for 2-3 weeks.  The vanilla sugar can be used  to sweeten espresso and lattes or in cookie and cake recipes.

How to Prepare a Vanilla Bean

Lay the bean flat on wax paper on a clean cutting surface. Gently slice from the center towards each end. Carefully open the split bean and scrape the delicate seeds with a knife blade. Opening the seed pod before placing it in a liquid exposes more of the beans surface, intensifying the natural flavors.

Optional: Soften the bean before opening, by steaming for up to two minutes.

How to Store Vanilla Beans

To keep your vanilla beans fresh, store them in a cool air-tight container. IN general, there is no need to refrigerate or freeze vanilla beans. However, this may be necessary for a couple of very hot weeks in the summer months. 

How to Make Vanilla Extract

The ingredients are 3-4 vanilla beans, a cup of vodka or alcohol, glass jar or bottle. YOu can split the beans as shown above if you like. Put the vanilla beans in the glass jar and cover completely with the vodka or alcohol. Make sure the lid is air-tight. Keep aside in a cool dark place for 6-8 weeks. Once a week give the jar a good shake.
