Nielsen-Massey Vanilla Bean 101

Nielsen-Massey Vanilla Bean 101

Vanilla is one of the world's most rare and exotic flavors. Most vanilla beans come from an orchid species called Vanilla planifolia Andrews and must be hand-pollinated, hand-picked, and hand- cured. Not all vanilla beans are alike - the size, flavor, and aroma are unique to each growing region. Vanilla beans from Madagascar are the perfect, all-purpose vanilla due to the sweet, creamy, and full-bodied flavor. Vanilla beans from Mexico offer a rich, yet spicy-sweet flavor, similar to clove or nutmeg. Tahitian vanilla beans are from a different species of orchid called Vanilla tahitensis Moore, creating a distinct flavor profile. These beans provide a floral and fruity flavor with cherry-like undertones. Most of the world's vanilla supply is from Madagascar, with smaller crops coming from different areas, such as Mexico and Tahiti. Vanilla can be the star ingredient or it can play a supporting role, complementing and enhancing other flavors within a dish.

This Nielsen-Massey Tahitian vanilla extract will transport your patrons to the sun-kissed island of Tahiti, where warm ocean breezes tantalize the senses with the unmistakable fragrance of vanilla. On this tiny island in the South Pacific, expert farmers carefully hand-pollinate delicate green and yellow vanilla orchid flowers to produce plump seed pods that resemble green beans. These pods ripen on the vine under the tropical sun for around 5 months before being hand-harvested and cured. Mature pods are left to sit under the gentle rays of the morning sun for 3-4 hours each day, before being wrapped in cloth and stored in boxes each night to reduce their moisture content. From pollinating to harvesting to curing, it takes approximately a year to transform the fragrant flowers of vanilla orchids into distinctive, dark brown vanilla beans. This time- and skill-intensive process - in addition to Nielsen-Massey's proprietary cold-extraction process, which preserves this heat-sensitive vanilla's flavor compounds - results in vanilla with an unparalleled flavor that cannot be matched by synthetic alternatives.

Tahitian vanilla is grown from a different variety of vanilla orchid than the one that produces the more common Madagascar Bourbon vanilla, giving this vanilla extract a distinct flavor that is unlike any other. Tahitian vanilla is known for its notably floral and fruity flavor, with notes of cherry, anise, and chocolate. This unique flavor makes Tahitian vanilla extract a favorite of pastry chefs! However, its important to bear in mind that this vanilla's delicate flavor profile does not hold up well to high-heat applications, so it is best used to flavor cold or frozen foods. Try using this prized vanilla extract to add floral, fruity flavor to pastry creams, puddings, and custards! It's also great for flavoring fruit pies and sauces, where its distinctive flavor profile will complement your other ingredients without overpowering them. Blend it into beurre blanc to create a unique topping for fresh seafood dishes, or mix it into your house salad dressing to add depth of flavor!

This Tahitian vanilla extract also makes a great addition to a variety of beverages! Try adding a dash to smoothies and milkshakes to add a gourmet flavor that your customers are sure to remember. Its fruity flavor also makes it a delicious addition to cranberry juice, as well as tropical cocktails like martinis, margaritas, or the classic gin fizz! You can even blend some into your homemade eggnog to add unique flavor to this holiday classic. No matter how you choose to serve it, your customers are sure to remember the unique flavor of this Nielsen-Massey Tahitian vanilla extract!
