100% Organic Vanilla Pods
We LOVE vanilla. We don’t love how it’s extracted. Over the years we’ve tried to find a vanilla that didn’t have that alcohol taste. Because we don’t bake our bar and burn all that alcohol off that flavor remained in our bars. I always wondered why we couldn’t just grind up pure pods and use the powder. So….. Now we do. And the taste is incredible. The pods have an oily and wonderful pure flavor. It’s the best of the best.
What are the health properties of vanilla? Well, not too many actually, unless of course you consider LOVE to be healthy.
Thomas Jefferson is credited with vanilla’s arrival in the United States. When he returned from his ambassadorship in France in 1789, he was dismayed to discover that no one in the States knew about vanilla, so he wrote his French attache requesting that he send him 50 vanilla pods. Clearly Jefferson’s personal passion was well received since soon it was used as a flavoring, a medicine, and an aphrodisiac.
In the 1800s Dr. John King, advised in the American Dispensatory, that one should use vanilla to, “stimulate the sexual propensities.” He went on to give a very carefully detailed recipe for a decoction promising amorous evenings. If the good doctor was right, a hefty swig of vanilla extract before bedtime could work like a charm.
