We are pleased to present a one-time special buy from Ecuador. If you haven't tried our Ecuadorian vanilla beans already, this is a great chance to do so at a much lower price. There is very limited inventory of this special buy and we will stock out. Like other special buys, this is the same vanilla bean as our current Ecuadorian bean, but we were able to secure a one-time low price and it is offered only in the 1oz size. We named this special buy, "Ambato", after the beautiful city of Ambato Ecuador.
Vanilla beans grown in Ecuador offer flavors that are exclusive to the region where they are grown. Of course, the predominant flavor is a bold vanilla that is sweet and somewhat floral. But the smells and tastes of plums, apricots and cherries set this bean apart as an entirely new vanilla experience. Like most tahitensis beans, they are a bit smaller than the planifolia, usually in the 13cm - 17cm range, which is why they are sold by weight and not by bean.
When you first open a pouch of Ecuadorian tahitensis vanilla beans, your nose will be met with a strong, floral vanilla scent with undertones of plums and apricots. As you remove the bean from the pouch you will be intrigued by its durable outer skin that is strengthened through the curing and sun-drying process used to harvest these vanilla beans. After it has aired for a moment, the smell of plums, apricots and cherries become more pronounced.
This is the perfect vanilla bean for a sweet extract utilizing rum or vodka as its alcohol base. For cooking, the caviar of this bean is a perfect addition to homemade ice cream, fruit-based pastries, creams and frostings. It will make a vanilla sugar that is totally unique and can be converted into a powder with innumerable culinary applications.
This vanilla bean is sure to impress as an entirely new and novel vanilla experience.
