As an essential ingredient for making crème brûlée, vanilla ice cream, and many other dishes, nothing beats a quality vanilla bean. Some recipes call for splitting the bean and using only the tiny black vanilla seeds contained in the bean. Place used and dried vanilla beans in a few cupfuls of sugar. After a few days, you will have delicious vanilla sugar to use in your cookie and cake recipes.

Customer Rating: Summary: JRMushrooms - Vanilla Beans Comment: I ordered several packages of vanilla beans for myself and my sister. We both are very impressed with them and what a deal. We're both starting new batches of vanilla. Also, we received them very promptly. Thanks! Customer Rating: Summary: Second Purchase - these are great! Awesome seller - shipped free - Thanks again! Comment: This is my second purchase of these vanilla beans - I ordered 16 the first time & went for 1/2 pound the second time around. I made my own vanilla extract - amazing! I'll never buy already made extract again. (I used to get the expensive stuff too!) I'm also giving my extract away as Christmas gifts this year. I think I'll try the Creme Brule recipe with some of this batch. Thanks again, JR Mushrooms! Customer Rating: Summary: Vanilla Beans Comment: Great vanilla beans at a great price. I was paying $8.00 per bean at the supermarket. Customer Rating: Summary: Vanilla beans become affordable Comment: Hard to see much difference between a supermarket bottle at $10 per vanilla bean and these for less than a dollar per. Makes it practical to drop one or two beans in making a cannister of ice cream.
