Whole vanilla pods have a delicate, sweet flavour with floral, creamy notes. The famous vanilla pod is the queen of sweet food, owing to its irresistible taste. The long black pods contain sticky seeds that are removed to flavour custard, panna cotta, chocolate and milkshakes. The empty pods can also be infused to release seductively sweet flavours. These are Grade A Bourbon Pods.

Vanilla pods are the world’s second most expensive spice after saffron due to the complex cultivation process. Over 80% of pods grow in Madagascar due to its ideal climate. Each pod must be hand-pollinated over 4+ months as they mature and during this time farmers are at risk of theft. Crops can, therefore, require 24-hour protection.

Vanilla pods are the fruit of the vanilla orchid, which is originally native to Mexico and Central America. They have been used as a flavoring for centuries and are one of the world’s most popular spices. In addition to its culinary uses, vanilla is used in a variety of other products, including perfumes, candles, and soaps. It is also a common ingredient in some traditional medicines and is used as a natural remedy for various ailments.

Most commercially available vanilla products (such as vanilla extract and vanilla flavoring) are made from the seeds of vanilla pods. The seeds are extracted using a solvent, such as alcohol, and then the liquid is used as a flavoring.

    For flavour I give 5 stars. I have however dropped a star because it is so expensive and also because the photo is very deceptive. I thought I was getting 2 pods for that price as it shows 2!!
