Guatemalan Vanilla is an undiscovered treasure! For centuries, this vanilla was the exclusive secret of the native peoples of this region, until Hernán Cortés brought them back to Spain and introduced them to the world. It took another 300 years before someone figured out how to make them grow in Madagascar.
Vanilla is also a Powerhouse Superfood! Bursting with Antioxidants, Vitamins and Minerals: Magnesium, Calcium, Potassium, Manganese, Zinc, Iron, Vitamin B2, Fiber, and still SO delicious.
USES: The vanilla bean is usually sliced down the middle and the tiny seeds are scraped out. (Although we use the Whole Bean!) Make essential oil, beauty treatments, homemade vanilla extract, vanilla sugar, vanilla salt, desserts, sauces, infuse in liquor, or as a garnish.
