Vera Cruz Vanilla
Dear friend of Gourmet Delights,
We don’t sell Vanilla from all over the world; we make the best Vanilla in the world!
Vera Cruz Vanilla is the exclusive U.S. importer of the Orlando Vanilla Company. Founded over 30 years ago by the Ramos family, our small, family-owned and operated business begins with hand selected, prime vanilla beans from their native origin of Mexico!
The beans are prepared in small, quality controlled batches by the nurturing hands of "La Familia". We are not interested in making vanilla for millions of people. We take pride in making our vanilla for the discerning person that recognizes quality. In order to achieve the best quality, all the work is done by hand.
Our vanilla beans are aged for over one year. This aging process allows the beans to develop the hundreds of flavor components found in the bean, and allows the different flavor components to blend together. The major flavor component found in the vanilla bean is naturally extracted pure vanillin, and we blend this vanillin in a way that stabilizes the flavor during the cooking process. This natural "vanilla extract" is a mixture of several hundred different natural compounds in addition to the pure vanillin. This process creates the sweet, creamy taste you experience when using this exquisite vanilla.
Our beans are grown naturally, in an eco-friendly manner, using citrus trees to support the vines. We also use a natural mulch (no chemical fertilizers) to provide nourishment to these fragile vines.
Combine 1/4 cup Vanilla vodka (make your own with Vera Cruz Vanilla Beans and your favorite vodka), 2 tablespoons Baileys, 2 teaspoons Vera Cruz Vanilla, and 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice in an ice filled shaker. Shake vigorously. Strain into a chilled martini glass and dust with ground nutmeg.
We love using the Maldon, Fleur de Sel, or Cyprus Flake Salts, with our Vera Cruz Vanilla, to make Salted Caramel Almond Thumbprint Cookies.
Toss one premium vanilla bean into a glass jar filled with sugar & use the vanilla scented sugar on baked breads or oatmeal.
Toss one premium vanilla bean into your favorite bottle of vodka for your own vanilla vodka.
