Add robust vanilla flavor and visual appeal to your culinary creations with this Nielsen-Massey pure vanilla paste! 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 paste is created by blending vanilla extract with the seeds from vanilla pods to produce a thick consistency similar to molasses and a rich, robust flavor profile with the classic vanilla taste that your customers know and love.

Vanilla paste is a great way to elevate any recipe that calls for vanilla extract. Its thick consistency makes it a perfect way to add vanilla flavor to your batters and sauces without thinning them out! Add it to batters for cakes, cookies, or even pancakes to enhance your recipes with rich vanilla flavor and specks of vanilla seeds. Scoop a bit into your signature tomato sauce, where its velvety taste will add richness and depth of flavor while tempering the acidity of the tomatoes! You can even try using this vanilla paste in glazes for poultry, seafood, or pork.

The delicate flecks of vanilla seeds in this vanilla paste make it a great way to add visual interest to your recipes and baked goods! Blend it into rich frostings for a gourmet topping that will make your cakes and cupcakes stand out, or fold it into house-made ice cream for a decadent treat your customers are sure to remember. It also makes a great addition to creme brulee, pudding, pound cake, milkshakes, gelato, or any menu offering that could use a bit of gourmet flair! For an easy way to elevate your breakfast service, stir a spoonful into oatmeal or yogurt for a simple yet delicious treat that your guests are sure to love. No matter how you choose to use it, this vanilla paste will be a versatile addition to your menu! 1 tablespoon of this vanilla paste is equal to 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract or 1 whole vanilla bean.
