Indonesian Vanilla Beans

Indonesian Planifolia Vanilla Beans are sweet and creamy like their cousins from Madagascar, with a more complex flavor profile that finishes with unique earthy/woody undertones. They are bold, with slightly fruity, fig-like notes reminiscent of Tonga vanilla beans. They stand up well against stronger flavors like chocolate and caramel, but can also be used in any application that calls for Madagascar Bourbon vanilla, to add a bit more sophistication to your favorite dessert.

The current lot of Indonesian vanilla beans are very plump, pliable and moist.

"Though Indonesia produced only commodity-grade beans for years, its offerings are on the upswing. The world's second-largest vanilla exporter now delivers beans that sit between Mexico's and Madagascar's in appearance and boast a distinctly raisiny, acidic, prune-like flavor. Try putting these beans to use in chocolate-based desserts like brownies or hot cocoa. The quality of Indonesian beans varies vastly, so buy them only from a trusted source."
