Plump, luscious, fragrant richly seeded pods are ideal for recipes that call for infusing a whole pod, or for scraping the seeds into an infusion.
Finely chopped pods can be used in raw food dishes.
Use a small sharp knife to split the pod lengthwise and scrape the seeds as your recipe directs.
Leave a whole pod in your icing or caster sugar for instant vanilla sugar.
A vanilla pod shell, after being used in an infusion still contains heaps of flavour, so wash and dry the pod, and re-use it, even several times, then leave it in your sugar - regular, castor or icing sugar, and have fragrant vanilla sugar on hand.
Supplied in a glass tube of three pods.
The 2018 harvest is again likely to be low and presently few pods are available. Demand on the crop has meant higher prices from the curers.
When pos are difficult to get, Koefaga Vanilla Paste will deliver the same flavour and seeds in your panna cotta, simply spoon from the jar.
When available I am happy to supply vacuum packed pods in 20g and 50g sizes. Email to inquire.
