A-Grade hand-pollinated vanilla bean from our botanical gardens. Our vanilla beans are individually selected based on size, shape, flavor and quality. After curing in the sun for days, the vanilla is ground into a fine powder and sealed in a corked glass vile for preserving freshness. Makes a delicious and flavorful addition to coffee, tea, smoothies, cereal, baked goods and ice cream, without the added alcohol found in typical vanilla extracts. Each bottle is the equivalent of 4 vanilla beans.
