Vanilla pods from the 2022 harvest are now available, and they are plump and fragrant!
These beans are supple and fragrant, with about a 30% moisture content. Each package contains 2–3 pods, weighing at least 1/3 oz.
These beans can be used to flavor recipes such as cakes, cookies, custards, etc. To use in a recipe, split the pod down the middle with a sharp knife, then scrape out the interior. The pulp is difficult to mix, so it’s best to mix the pulp with a very small amount of liquid at first to thin the paste before adding to your recipe. The scraped pods can be used to make extract, or just to flavor your coffee.
These pods were grown in our vanillery and cured using our unique curing process developed for wet, cool Kauai winter weather. After curing, they were aged for a minimum of 3 months.
