Vanilla Bean Caviar - Seeds or Specks

Vanilla Bean Seeds or Specks, which are also sometimes called "caviar" are used primarily in vanilla ice cream. These seeds or specks contain very little flavor, since they are a by-product of the manufacture of vanilla extract.

Using Vanilla Beans
When your cake or ice cream recipe calls for one teaspoon of vanilla extract, try substituting one vanilla bean.  You can also use vanilla beans to make delicious vanilla sugar. This is a good use for beans, which have dried and are no longer fresh and pliable.  Cover the beans in 2 cups of granulated or Turbinado sugar for 2-3 weeks.  The vanilla sugar can be used anywhere regular sugar is needed. It is especially nice when used to sweeten espresso, lattes or used in cookie and cake recipes.

How to Prepare Vanilla Beans
Place the vanilla bean on a piece of wax paper or clean cutting surface. Gently slice from the center towards each end. Carefully open the cut bean and scrape the delicate seeds with a knife blade. Opening the seed pod before placing it in a liquid exposes more of the bean’s surface and intensifies the vanilla’s natural flavor.

How to Store Vanilla Beans
To keep your beans fresh, store them in a cool area in the same vacuum sealed pouch in which they were shipped.  If you have opened the pouch and cannot vacuum re-seal them with a food saver, wrap the beans in plastic wrap and store them in an air-tight container.  Never refrigerate your vanilla beans.  There is a mold that can bloom if the vanilla beans are refrigerated.  Vacuum sealed beans stored properly can last for up to three years. 

How to Make Your Own Pure Vanilla Extract
Place 5-6 beans in a liter of vodka or rum (my preference is a good quality gold rum, such as Mount Gay or Bacardi).  You can split the beans as described above. Shake the bottle occasionally and store for 6-8 weeks.  If you split the beans, the extract will have seeds in it, which can be filtered.  Whole beans work as well and there will be no seeds in your extract.  Your homemade extract can be used for baking and is also wonderful served over ice or used with mixers such as cola or tonic.

Vanilla bean and extract prices remain very strong and we now do not anticipate lower prices before the Spring of 2018. We offer a number of cost effective alternatives to using Pure Vanilla Extract. These are especially attractive for bakeries, ice cream parlors and food service providers where consumers typically do not see an ingredient statement. For baking we recommend our Vanilla Powder, Natural and Artificial and our Value Vanilla Flavor,Natural & Artificial SC06 (For Baking). Both of these products can be used to replace Pure Vanilla Extract in cakes, cookies and other applications. For use in ice cream we recommend our Value Vanilla, Natural& Artificial SC25 (For Ice Cream).
