"Plain vanilla" is anything but plain: invite your customers reimagine the potential of this popular flavor with Nielsen-Massey's pure vanilla extract! Under the warm rays of the tropical sun, 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 under the tropical sun for around 9 months before being hand-harvested and cured. The pods are first blanched in hot water, 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 pure vanilla extract has more than 250 flavor compounds that create a taste that's truly exceptional! The flavor experts at Nielsen-Massey carefully blend varieties of vanilla to create this extract; its flavor is rich and sweet, reminiscent of the classic vanilla flavor your customers know and love.

With hundreds of applications in your gourmet kitchen, the possibilities for this pure vanilla extract are practically limitless! Blend a few tablespoons into the batters of your cakes, cookies, and brownies, or beat it into your frostings and icings to create a delicious topping that will complement all of your culinary creations. This extract's complex flavor profile will add depth and richness to your baked goods and sweet treats that synthetic imitations simply cannot replicate! You can also try mixing this vanilla extract into house-made ice cream for a decadent treat that your customers are sure to remember. Keep a vial of vanilla extract behind the bar to add exotic flavor to iced teas, sangrias, or Manhattans.

Though vanilla flavor is most commonly associated with dessert, this versatile ingredient can be used in savory recipes as well! It's a great "secret ingredient" to drizzle into soups and sauces, where it adds depth of flavor and richness without being sweet or overpowering your other ingredients. It works particularly well in tomato-based broths and sauces; its creamy taste helps to temper the acidity of tomatoes while complementing your sauce's savory flavor profile. It's also a great addition to meat and seafood dishes! Try including some vanilla extract in your marinades, allowing its complex flavor to permeate your proteins, or blend it into sauces like traditional beurre blanc for your seafood. No matter how you choose to use it, this pure vanilla extract will be a memorable addition to your dishes! For best results, add this extract at the end of the cooking process, or cream it with butter to use in baking applications.
