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.
The pods are available, subject to supply in 25g vacuum packs and in a presentation glass vial of 3 pods.
3 pod glass vials $20
25g vacuum packs $30
The 2020 crop has been low, so the pod supply is limited.
Pods can be custom ordered. Please email (link below) to enquire about availability.
