Vanilla pods – per pod
Slowly sun cured before dried to get the perfect balance between sugars and aromatics.
The vanilla pod contains the seeds from the vanilla orchard plant. Genuine vanilla has a high value as the plants are hand pollinated. The green pods are then meticulously cared for until they are ready for harvest. They get sun cured before being dried, trapping in the delicious flavours and aromas. Yum.
White crystals sometimes form on the outside of the pods. These are deposits of natural Vanillin, indicating the high quality of the beans.
Origins: Madagascar, Comoros islands. Papua New Guinean
