  • Vanilla Bean Whole

    Product description

    The vanilla bean, or pod, is the long slender fruit of the vanilla orchid. Each pod contains thousands of seeds. It is one of the most expensive spices due to its complex and long curing process, particularly due to the orchid only flowering once per year. Vanilla beans are used in most of the world’s cuisines. They are the purest and most potent form of vanilla and can be reused to steep in the liquid until losing their flavour, or the seeds inside can be scraped out and the pod discarded. It has a floral aroma and a smooth caramel flavor. The best beans are air-dried to a moisture content of 25-30%.

    Other products: vanilla sugar.

  • Limes Dried Whole

    Product description

    Limes Dried Whole are limes picked at their ripest and dried to lock in maximum flavour and aroma. Dried limes are light-tan to brown in colour and are strongly flavoured. They taste sour and citrusy like a lime but they also taste earthy and somewhat smoky and lack the sweetness of fresh limes. Because they are preserved they also have a slightly bitter, fermented flavour, but the bitter accents are mainly concentrated in the lime’s outer skin and seeds. These are commonly used in Middle Eastern Cooking to counteract yet compliment the warm spices used in Middle Eastern dishes.
