I had to share this source with you all. Although it was a bit of a gamble, I ordered whole vanilla beans on-line from ‘Madagascar Direct’. It was an amazingly low price, not even comparable to the cooking supply stores here in LA. My parcel arrived quickly and the quality and freshness of the spices is outstanding. Something like this is simply too good to keep to myself. And a plus is that this store is set up to fund a children’s school, so this makes it a win/win!
So would you like vanilla sugar in that tea? We are already using these as a luxury ingredient in the Spiced Orange Slices, a complete and super easy-to-follow post coming soon!
