  • 2 Vanilla Beans

 Sweet, aromatic, fresh vanilla beans. Two per package.

Vanilla beans aren't really beans-they are actually the long, thin, dried pods of an orchid. Vanilla beans have a unique and exotic flavor that is much more complex than that of vanilla extract. 

To add vanilla bean to a liquid, slit the bean lengthwise with the point of a knife and drop the bean into the liquid. Remove the bean before serving. To add to a dry mixture, slit the bean and use the knife to scrape out the tiny seeds. To make vanilla sugar, add used bean halves to a container of sugar and let sit for a week; the scent of the vanilla will infuse the sugar.

To store, wrap vanilla beans tightly, place them in an airtight jar, and refrigerate them for no more than 6 months.
