Vanilla Essence

Add 1 to a few teaspoons of vanilla extract to your favorite sweet batters and custards before baking. Used in desserts such as ice cream, custards, crème sauces, or any liquid textured dessert, the essence can be added to the water being steeped for the dessert. 

Using vanilla as a sugar substitute also can reduce high blood glucose levels and help you lead a more heart-healthy lifestyle.

Vanilla grows as a vine, climbing up an existing tree or pole. The distinctively flavoured compounds are found in the fruit, which results from the pollination of one flower. Each flower is pollinated by hand individually. Inside the pods is an oily liquid full of tiny seeds.

The imperfectly grown Vanilla pods are used to extract Vanilla essence. This is done by mixing 10% Vanilla with a 90% alcohol-based solution for up to 6 months.
