Vanilla Bean Paste Tip

If you are making a tomato based sauce and find it to be too bitter, add vanilla bean paste to mask or smooth out the flavor. And, because it is a paste it will not thin out the sauce. For more tips and application ideas, watch this video about our Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Bean Paste.

What Chefs Have to Say

About our products

“It’s no secret, both for cooking and baking, always use the best ingredients. What’s the point of investing time to create something and use average ingredients? Vanilla Extract and Vanilla Bean Paste are my favorites, as well as the Lemon Extract. I like using the Vanilla Bean Paste, as it is the closest to using fresh vanilla pods with all the glorious little seeds, and the consistency doesn’t interfere with the recipes.”
