Papua New Guinea Vanilla Beans – Planifolia Species
Similar to Madagascar Vanilla beans, Planifolia vanilla beans from Papua New Guinea (PNG) delight with a traditionally rich and creamy flavor. These Papua New Guinea vanilla beans, from the fruit of the Vanilla planifolia orchid, abound in natural vanillin compounds.
- To use a Papua New Guinea vanilla bean, cut off each end of the vanilla bean. Slice lengthwise through the vanilla bean. Then remove the paste from the inside of the vanilla bean. Use as-is.
- Exquisite in a wide variety of baking and cooking recipes, like vanilla sugar, ice cream, sweet sauces, cakes, cookies, and, of course, incredible homemade vanilla extract
- Use the vanilla seeds to directly add the gourmet visual cue to ice creams, custards or crème brûlées
- For a genuinely gourmet wake-up, add vanilla seeds to coffee grounds to brew fresh, vanilla-flavored coffee. Otherwise, by adding pods to sugar, making vanilla sugar, you can flavor coffee or tea as you sweeten them.
PNG Vanilla Beans resonate with a creamy, smooth, sweet, mellow flavor and a long finish. Ideal for any application that requires a classic lingering vanilla accent.
