The term 'plain vanilla' certainly does not apply to the vanilla bean. After using real vanilla beans, it is easy to understand how this spice has become the cornerstone of pastry and baking. Vanilla beans are the most costly form of vanilla flavouring, but are without question the best. |
Tahitian vanilla beans are the most plump of the various species of vanilla bean. They contain the lowest amounts of vanillin, but are very aromatic, with complex floral flavours. Many fans of Tahitian beans also describe anise and licorice type flavourings within the bean.
