Mexican vanilla is a rich marriage of sweet and woody notes with a deep, spicy character, similar to clove or nutmeg. This origin-specific extract works especially well with chocolate, citrus fruits, cinnamon, cloves, and other warm spices. The vanilla's spiciness also enables it to complement the spice of tomato sauces, barbecue sauces, and salsas, smoothing out their heat and acidity. It will also give a culinary twist to your favourite recipes, including cookies, cakes, and ice creams.
Family-owned Nielsen-Massey Vanillas has been crafting the world's finest vanillas and flavours since its founding in Illinois in 1907. They understand that vanilla tastes best when its natural essence is allowed to shine. That's why they use a proprietary cold extraction process, a long, delicate procedure that protects the vanilla from heat and ensures that even its subtlest flavours survive extraction. They examine each bean to ensure that it meets their high standards and only use beans from the finest growing regions: Madagascar, Mexico, and Tahiti.
Ingredients: Water, alcohol (35%), sugar, vanilla bean extractives.
