We craft our Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Bean Paste using our famous Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract and real seeds from the vanilla pod. Due to its thick consistency, similar to molasses, this culinary paste enables you to add more delicious vanilla flavor without thinning out your batters or sauces. It's also ideal for recipes, such as crème brûlée and ice cream, in which you want to add the enticing visual flair of vanilla seeds. To replace vanilla extract in a recipe, simply measure the same amount of our Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Bean Paste and add. Or, replace one tablespoon of paste for every one whole vanilla bean. Available in 4-ounce jars. This product is Kosher and Gluten-Free Certified as well as All-Natural, Allergen-Free and GMO-Free. Ingredients: Sugar, Water, Vanilla Extract, Vanilla Beans, Gum Tragacanth (a natural thickener). Shelf life: 3 years.
