Invite your customers to immerse their senses in the indulgent, complex flavor of one of the world's most highly-prized spices with this Nielsen-Massey Mexican vanilla extract. In the warm, equatorial forests near Veracruz, Mexico, expert farmers carefully hand-pollinate delicate white and yellow vanilla orchid flowers to produce long seed pods that resemble green beans. These pods ripen on the vine for around 9 months before being hand-harvested and cured. The pods are first baked in ovens, then placed in the sun each day to absorb heat and moved to large wooden boxes each night to sweat. From pollinating to harvesting to curing, it takes well over a year to transform the fragrant flowers of vanilla orchids into distinctive, long, dark brown vanilla beans. This time- and skill-intensive process - in addition to Nielsen-Massey's proprietary cold-extraction process - results in vanilla with an unparalleled flavor that cannot be matched by synthetic alternatives. This Mexican vanilla extract has more than 250 flavor compounds that create a taste that's truly exceptional! Its sweet and woody flavor profile has a deep, creamy, spicy character that's reminiscent of savory spices like clove and nutmeg.
The sweet, spicy, sultry character of this Mexican vanilla extract makes it a versatile ingredient in your gourmet kitchen! It pairs well with spices like cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and allspice, as well as flavors like dark chocolate, banana, orange, and coconut. Try adding a few teaspoons to the batter of your ginger snaps or spiced cookies to bring richness and depth of flavor to your baked creations. It also makes an excellent addition to gourmet pumpkin pies, where it enhances the effect of your signature spices while adding subtle sweetness. Vanilla has been used by indigenous people in Mexico for hundreds of years to flavor chocolate beverages - try participating in this ancient tradition by adding a dash of this Mexican vanilla to warming hot chocolate drinks! You can even sprinkle some in chai tea lattes for an extra burst of flavor that your customers are sure to love.
Though vanilla is traditionally thought of as a flavoring for baked goods and sweet treats, the unique qualities of this Mexican vanilla extract make it a delicious addition to savory recipes as well. It works especially well in tomato-based sauces, where it adds smooth flavor while mellowing out the acidity of the tomatoes. Traditional Latin-American salsas and sauces flavored with chili peppers also benefit from the addition of this Mexican vanilla, which tempers the heat of spicy ingredients! Try adding a few drops to barbecue sauces or Southwestern-inspired chilis.
