There are two little words that are total turn-offs when reading food lables — “artificially flavored.” When you are craving authentic flavor, especially the sweet aromatic flavor of real vanilla, treat yourself to Nielsen-Massey Tahitian Vanilla Beans (www.NielsenMassey.com).

We recently used the whole vanilla bean to create two different taste sensations. We marinated plain vodka with a Nielsen-Massey Tahitian vanilla bean for 7 days to create a delicately flavored vanilla vodka with a lovely aroma.  In need of a savory sauce for a bread pudding dessert, this versatile whole bean came through for us again with a stove-top prepared caramel vanilla sauce. The company’s website gives a wide range of recipes you can create using one of their true vanilla products. Don’t ever settle for an imitation when Nielsen-Massey offers you the finest vanilla beans produced in the world.
