Vanilla pods contain the seeds from the vanilla orchid plant. Real vanilla is expensive as each plant must be pollinated individually by hand. Than the green pods must be cured in the sun over several days, raised to high temperatures and 'sweated' in cloth to achieve the complex balance of sugars and aromatics, then dried and straightened out for several weeks. This process also transforms the green seed pods into the characteristic wrinkly, dark - brown pods.
Our vanilla is coming from different areas in Indonesia and processed in our warehouse in Surabaya. We work with experienced farmers who can produce the highest quality of vanilla. The scarcity and high cost of production makes vanilla avaluable spice.
Vanilla is mainly used in desserts, beverages, custard, ice cream, baking etc.
