Opening a pouch of Ugandan vanilla beans for the first time is a memorable experience. Your nose will be met with a familiar vanilla smell, but with hints of raisins or figs. As you remove one of these plump vanilla beans from the pouch, you will be intrigued by its soft texture and its plump appearance. As you smell the individual bean, the fruity base will become more pronounced, evoking thoughts of cinnamon rolls, banana breads, orange rolls and other fruit-based baking applications that are perfect for this vanilla bean.
The soil and climate of Uganda provide an environment that results in a bold and earthy vanilla bean taste with hints of figs and raisins, accentuated only by the vanilla bean's natural rich and buttery softer vanilla notes. Ugandan vanilla beans typically contain a higher-than-average vanillin content. This makes them perfect for vanilla extracts along with darker chocolate, sweet breads, fruit-based desserts or strong vanilla desserts.
We sell by the ounce within our co-op, not by the bean, to ensure that you get the same amount every time no matter the bean size of any particular harvest. Grade-B vanilla beans will have many more vanilla beans/oz than grade-A since they are drier.
Ugandan vanilla beans are a favorite in baking and DIY extract making with a fruit sensation that enhances your favorite tarts, pies, custards and creams.
VanillaPura vanilla beans are all shipped vacuum sealed for freshness and should be stored unrefrigerated in a cool, dry and dark place.
