Wild foraged Pompona Vanilla beans from Veracruz, MX. Reminiscent of leather, oak, and allspice, this flat variety takes twice as long to cure and totally different than the more common planifolia vanilla variety.
We recommend submerging whole beans in vodka to preserve them. The exterior oils from the vanilla pod will eventually transform the vodka into a potent vanilla extract for every day use. When you're wanting to really amplify the pronounced vanilla flavor in a recipe, we recommend fishing out a whole bean from the vodka, cutting lengthwise, and scraping out all the internal pulp and seeds from within the bean. This potent pulp can then be mixed into your sauce or mixture.
This item is for 1 oz. of Pompona Vanilla Beans (approx 3-4 beans).
