Cooking with Vanilla Beans

December 9, 2013 | By | Comments (1)

Cooking with vanilla beans instead of the commercial extract adds a profound flavor to many dishes. The difference is well worth the effort. Most supermarkets carry vanilla beans in the spice section. Extracting the pulp from the pod is simple. Using a small knife with a pointed tip, cut the vanilla bean in half length-wise. Scrape out the seeds with the knife blade, or push them out of the vanilla half with your thumbnail.

    This is a great substation, and I am sure it tastes much better than the extract. Thanks for the article!
