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.
Madagascar vanilla beans are processed using the "Bourbon" curing method. These bulk grade B vanilla beans are very distinct, with a flavor and aroma profile that make these beans the most popular and sought-after vanilla variety.
**Please Note: When purchasing vanilla beans by weight, please be aware that you may not receive the exact number of beans you are expecting from our estimates. Like any agricultural product, our vanilla beans have the potential to vary in length & size from crop-to-crop. If you need to ensure that you receive an exact quantity of whole beans we recommend purchasing a specific quantity amount.**
