Mountains of the Moon™ now offers certified organic and fair trade, hand-extracted, pure vanilla paste.Vanilla pods are dehiscent, that is to say very ripe pods have the tendency to split at the base so as to release the mature seeds. We use these split beans to produce vanilla paste. The paste is extracted by hand by splitting the beans open with a sharp knife and then carefully scraping out the pulp and the seeds that are embedded in the pulp. The silky-black and smooth pulp contains most of the natural vanillin found in a bean. It takes over 5 kg of beans to produce 1 kg of paste!
The soul of the vanilla bean is the ingredient for the ultimate chocolate, patisserie, dairy products or ice cream! Available in sealed 1 kg bags and in 5 kg re-sealable buckets.No Comments | posted September 23, 2009 under Paste · Vanille
