Next, an exclusive cold extraction process slowly and gently draws the delicate and distinctive flavor from the vanilla beans. The result is the finest pure vanilla in the world -- perfect for the home cook or the discriminating chef.

Vanilla Fun Facts!

  • A few drops of vanilla in a can of paint will help eliminate unpleasant odors!
  • A vanilla bean under your car seat gives a fresh aroma and helps eliminate musty odors.
  • A teaspoon or so of vanilla in Italian tomato sauces or Mexican chili helps cut the acidity of the tomatoes!
  • The United States consumption of vanilla beans is approximately 1,200 tons per year!
  • In baking, cream the vanilla with the shortening or butter portion of the ingredients. The fat encapsulates the vanilla, preventing it from volatilizing in the baking process.
  • Vanilla beans are hand-pollinated, on family plantations.
  • The entire vanilla cultivation process, from planting to market, can take from five to six years!
  • Vanilla extract is used by veteran fishermen to mask the smell of their hands so the fish won't detect them!

The Nielsen Massey Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla  I received to try had a diving scent and added a high quality taste to my chocolate chip cookies. The Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Sugar was so yummy!! I actually ate it just by itself at first but then ended up adding it to my oatmeal and it was perfect, much better than just adding brown sugar because it add that extra special taste of vanilla. I would definitely suggest purchasing the cookbook A Century of Flavor, the recipes sound to die for and it meets my number one requirement in a cookbook- it has lots of beautiful pictures!
