Our Vanilla Pods are a wonderfully fragrant ingredient to add to custards, desserts, cakes, sweet sauces, confectionary and biscuits, harvested from the finest vanilla plants from Indonesia. Vanilla is a very evocative spice, which as well as creating delicious aromas and flavours, can also trigger memories of days gone by. Vanilla is a perennial, herbaceous tropical climbing vine native to Mexico, also cultivated in Africa and Indonesia which reaches a height of up to 10 metres.

Did you know that the word vanilla is believed to be derived from the Spanish word ‘vaina’ which means ‘little pod’? Vanilla flowers are hand pollinated which is why they are the spice is the second most expensive spice after saffron. After the pods are harvested they are ‘cured’ both in direct sunlight and out of it to varying degrees, the curing process can take 2-3 months. It takes a total of 5kg of fresh vanilla pods to make 1kg of dried cured vanilla pods.

Suggested use:

For best results store your vanilla pods in a cool dark place. To use, slit the vanilla pod open down its length, and scrape out the small, sticky seeds using the tip of a small, sharp knife and add them to your recipe. Left over pods can be placed into a container of sugar to make vanilla sugar.
Use the vanilla pods to flavour milk based puddings such as ice creams, crème brûlée and custards, they can be added to chocolate and sweet bread recipes, cakes and biscuits. The pods can also be soaked in vodka to make your own vanilla extract, or ground to add to sugar.
