Hand-pollinated vanilla bean from our botanical gardens ground into powder. Our vanilla beans are individually selected based on size, shape, flavor and quality. After a month long curing process, the vanilla is dried and ground into a fine powder and sealed in a corked glass vial to preserve 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.
