Description

Vanilla beans are magical. Not only do they look like fairy wands and have an aroma that always brings me to a standstill, but these beans have the ability to transform scoops of ice cream into childhood memories and dishes of creme brulee into marriage proposals.

Why Vanilla Beans Are So Special

Vanilla beans are the fruits of a few very particular kinds of orchids, and they require special growing conditions and careful handling to thrive. Once harvested, the pods also have to be dried, cured, and then aged all before becoming the baking ingredient we know and love. This means that real, whole vanilla beans are one of the most expensive spices in our cupboards. But vanilla beans return the favour by providing us with such rich, intense aromas and flavours in our baked goods. They’re a special ingredient, but worth it.

Health benefits of vanilla

  • Vanilla beans are one of the expensive non-pungent spices used especially as a flavouring agent in a wide array of sweet drinks and confectionaries.

  • The vanilla paste is chiefly composed of simple and complex sugars, essential oils, vitamins, and minerals.

  • The chief chemical component in the beans is vanillin.

  • This condiment spice also contains small traces of minerals such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, manganese, iron and zinc. Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids that helps control heart rate and blood pressure.

Store Vanilla Beans Away from Heat or Light: Store vanilla beans at room temperature away from heat or sunlight, like in a cupboard. If you have leftover unused vanilla beans after opening the package, store them in a plastic bag with the air pressed out or in a vacuum-sealed bag.  As tempting as it might be to stash vanilla beans away for a special occasion, they are best when used within a few weeks of buying them. Beans will slowly dry out over time, even if kept sealed in their original packaging, so use them while they’re still at their best. Urban Platters Vanilla Beans comes in a vacuum seal so there’s no question of any contamination.

Use Your Vanilla Pods: For baking, we’re usually most interested in the tiny seeds inside the vanilla pod, but the pods themselves have a lot of flavour, too. You can use the scraped-out pods to infuse milk or cream with subtle vanilla flavour, or you can stick them in a jar of sugar to make vanilla-scented sugar. You can get some life out of any forgotten, dried-out pods unearthed from your cupboard in these ways, as well.
