Vanilla Paste

Who doesn't like trying new things in the kitchen? Should have included this in the previous post with the Saigon Cinnamon. Have used the cinnamon & vanilla paste together in several recipes over the holidays & they are so wonderful. The vanilla paste is quite tasty & contains flecks of vanilla bean. Have stirred it into yogurt & made ice cream with it. Substitute it for vanilla extract in like amounts. Wonderful!

This vanilla paste as well as the saigon cinnamon sound wonderfully fragrant!

I've never tried vanilla paste before. Does it taste any different than extract?

Hi Kat--Yes, they are fragrant. Makes the whole house smell wonderful. Thanks for visiting.

Hello Natalia--I think it tastes more "real" if that makes any sense. You can see the actual vanilla bean flecks in it. It is the consistency of a thick syrup. I suppose if you didn't want vanilla bean flecks in your product you might not want to use it. Thanks for leaving a comment. Come back!

Interesting. I have never seen vanilla paste. Is it difficult to find?

Hi Pebbles--got mine at Trader Joe's. Nielsen-Massey has it also, although probably costs more. Haven't seen it in the grocery stores. Was sure worth the trip to TJ's! Thanks for leaving a comment.

Thanks for the info! I love TJs! I went there all the time when I lived in Boston - 10 years ago. They are trying to open here in Atlanta...I am quite excited.
