  • Chef’s notes: To scrape a vanilla bean, start from the center, cutting a slit with the tip of a sharp knife. Spread the bean apart to expose the seeds and scrape with the dull side of the knife. Scrape the sticky seeds off the side of the knife. Repeat with the other side of the bean. Delicious vanilla flavor is found in both the bean and the seeds, so try to use both. As long as the bean still possesses its characteristic aroma and is moist and pliable, you can rinse, dry and use it again.

About Our Products

What Chefs Have to Say

"We use Tahitian and Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Beans in our gelatos, cakes and plated desserts. Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract goes into almost every bakery product, and we also use the Almond, Lemon, Peppermint and Chocolate Extracts. Most of the pastry chefs I worked under early in my career used Nielsen-Massey Vanilla. It's our vanilla of choice, exclusively."
