Even casual fans of the Food Network personality Ina Garten know she’s devoted to quality. In her TV show “Barefoot Contessa,” she often emphasizes using “good olive oil” and “good vanilla.” Madagascar vanilla beans often come up in her baking. They’re also one of the most-searched-for products. Are you curious about what to do with vanilla beans yourself?
Madagascar Vanilla Beans
Feel like an artisanal home cook with some Madagascar vanilla beans in your kitchen. They’re surprisingly versatile. You can use them in either sweet or savory dishes. Stored properly, they’ll last for years, so it’s a worthwhile culinary investment. Keep them cool and dry in an airtight container. You can be just like Ina and use them to make your own vanilla extract. Just add vodka! (Feel free to mix yourself a cocktail while you’re at it.)
