What are vanilla beans?
Vanilla beans are fruit pods produced by tropical climbing orchids, Vanilla planifolia, Vanilla pompona and Vanilla tahitiensis. Among the 3 cultivars, V.planifolia is the most common worldwide. The beans are pleasantly fragrant and have been used since the ancient time by Mayan people to flavor their chocolate drinks. Even now, vanilla is used worldwide for giving sweet fragrant to foods and drinks, such as cakes, cookies, and vanilla milk.
Vanilla beans are highly priced. They are native to tropical rainforests in Central America, but now already spread to other tropical countries because of European explorers. Now, vanilla beans are grown commercially in Madagascar, Indonesia, India, Puerto Rico and West Indies.
We may buy vanilla in its dry brown pods or vanilla extracts. The pods undergo some process until they are dry and dark-brown like we usually find in stores. The unripe pods are harvested when they reach 13-20 cm length, and begin to have light-yellow color. Then they are blanched briefly in boiling water, then dried in the sun for 2-3 weeks until they become dry, thin, shriveled and have dark-brown color.
