Plump, luscious, fragrant richly seeded pods are ideal for recipes that call for infusing a whole pod, or for scraping the seeds into an infusion.
Finely chopped pods can be used in raw food dishes.
Use a small sharp knife to split the pod lengthwise and scrape the seeds as your recipe directs.
Leave a whole pod in your icing or caster sugar for instant vanilla sugar.
A vanilla pod shell, after being used in an infusion still contains heaps of flavour, so wash and dry the pod, and re-use it, even several times, then leave it in your sugar - regular, castor or icing sugar, and have fragrant vanilla sugar on hand.
Supplied in a glass tube of three pods.
