Vanilla Beans (Madagascar Bourbon), Extract Grade B

Madagascar Extract Grade B vanilla beans contain significantly less moisture and are less attractive. They are smaller and contain many imperfections (splits and cracks), unlike our premium Grade A beans. Don't worry though, because the flavor isn't in the appearance. These beans will work just fine in your homemade vanilla extract, but are not ideal for baking or cooking with.
