Vanilla Pods Uses
Traditionally organic vanilla bean pods have been used to infuse a superb vanilla flavour into ice creams, pastries, desserts, and beverages. Thankfully there are multitudes of recipes available online and in old cooking books for the indulgence of crafting Ice Cream and desserts such as Panna Cotta, Custard, Creme Brule, Cream Caramel, and Cheesecake or Eggnog.
More recently, there has been a growing number of master brewers around the world now regularly nestling the rich vanilla flavours deep into craft beers. Some really tasty vanilla-flavoured Stouts, Dark Ales, and Wheat Beers appear on tap at many popular hotels.
