- Vanilla Absolute
Grown and solvent extracted in Madagascar
This vanilla is really sweet and delightful. Softer than you usually find with the Plantifolia.
Vanilla is the fruit from a magnificent orchid, a very high maintenance, highly improbable orchid, that must be hand pollinated (except in Mexico because humming birds do it there,) and is a slow maturing fuss budget every step of the way. But what a glorious smell! Imagine the aromas of Western Madagascar, as the vanilla matures, in bales of hundreds of pods.
What does vanilla do? It's an aphrodesiac for one thing, and it's sweet, comforting, delicious, sexy, mouth-watering, and any other adjectives you can think of in that ilk. It's a well known flavor, for all baked goods, ice cream, soda, candy, etc.
