Vanilla Bean - Madagascar
Update: Madagascar, which produces approximately 85% of the global vanilla crop, has undergone a series of low-yield harvests, due to poor flowering in 2016 and a hurricane earlier this year. At this time, we cannot provide an estimate as to when reliable sources of high quality vanilla will once again be available.
As we continue to search for quality sources to replenish our stock, we are also seeking out alternatives which offer a similar level of quality & depth of flavor. We are currently offering vanilla bean puree, which is available for purchase here.
This post will be updated as more information becomes available. - April 25, 2017
These whole vanilla beans from Madagascar are some of the finest available, and our stock is always fresh. Scrape out the seeds or dissolve them in liquor for use in baking, dessert sauces or as an aperitif. Try sinking several split beans into a jar of sugar, let stand for several weeks to create vanilla sugar and then use it in baking or simply sprinkle some on fresh berries with cream. Fabulous!
