Mexican Gourmet Vanilla Beans
Hight Quality Vanilla
The Mexican vanilla bean is the most original variety of vanilla because Mexico is the home of this orchid family & the Totonacs were the first to know about vanilla cultivation. The flavour profile of Mexican Vanilla Beans is similar to Madagascar vanilla beans, though the Mexican vanilla has a mellower, smoother quality and a spicy, woody fragrance that provides a depth that the other vanilla beans can’t match. The bold, robust flavour of Mexican Vanilla Beans is perfect in recipes where vanilla is playing a starring role. This makes it perfect in rich baked goods, cheesecakes, chocolate desserts, custards, crème brulee, ice cream and sweet breads. In contrast to bourbon vanilla, the Mexican vanilla variety does not exude strong sweet notes, but stays in the background with its tart, heavy, woody aroma and leaves a small, yet cheeky floral bouquet at the end. Perfect to also accompany spicy dishes, such as fish, game fowl or bitter vegetables, and a pleasant accompaniment to jams and bitter chocolate desserts.
