Product Info

Dark. Supple. Intensely Aromatic. 

Vanilla is our family business for more than a century. We personally select the finest, fully-ripened vanilla beans, each one hand-pollinated by small farmers, and sun-cured for four months entirely by hand. 

Truly artisanal. Craftsmanship at its finest.

Vanilla is a rain-forest orchid. It requires loving and devoted hand labor. We work intimately with small farmers and curers for the best beans. No one produces finer vanilla beans than Madagascar. No one selects finer Madagascar vanilla beans than Cook's.

Recommended Usage

To use a vanilla bean, using a sharp knife, carefully cut down the length of the vanilla bean. Using the dull edge of the knife, gently scrape out the seeds into the desired batter or mix. Do not throw away the remaining fibrous pod, rather steep it in milk or cream to infuse with delicate vanilla flavor or place into sugar jar to scent your sugar with vanilla flavor.

One inch of vanilla bean is equal to 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. 

See our blog on Making Homemade Vanilla Extract!
