The last time I went to Indonesia, i took home mie keriting, candle nut, a bunch of mixes, sauces, and spices. But one thing I didn’t know that vanilla beans should have been part of that list! I have only once bought a vanilla bean, but I was so intent on keeping it that I used it once and tried to make vanilla extract with it. TRIED. I don’t remember what happened with that. If the potency was good or not. But I did end up using the flavorful vodka in my recipes.
But theeeese! Only for about $10! 🙂 My friends got me some of these ones and even in a sealed baggie, they do smell good! Woooohoooo! Now what is a good recipe focusing mostly on the good vanilla taste/ 🙂 Something simple maybe, like pudding 🙂
