Lorann Madagascar Vanilla Bean Paste

(Last Updated On: January 5, 2010)

Vanilla is one of the best flavorings around. It is used in sorts of delicious treats – brownies, cookies, and of course ice cream to just name a few. Vanilla extract is widely available to add vanilla flavoring, but it’s not as good as the fresh stuff you get from the vanilla bean itself. Problem is vanilla beans aren’t cheap. About a year ago I found an in between that came me more of the vanilla bean flavor with closer to the extract cost. The in between is vanilla bean paste from the company Lorann. It comes in a 4 oz container. 1 tablespoon of the paste is equal to 1 vanilla bean or 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract. Whenever I make vanilla ice cream this is what I use to flavor it. I like how you get little pieces of vanilla in the ice cream. I have gotten several batches of delicious vanilla ice cream from this container. I haven’t used it in anything else yet so if anyone out there has, feel free to leave a comment about your experience.
