Nielsen Massey Vanilla Review & Giveaway

 

Nielsen-Massey Vanillas

                       

Nielsen-Massey Vanillas. The finest pure vanilla in the world!
How do we stake such a claim? It starts with a family dedicated to pure vanilla products since 1907. Add the finest vanillaNielsen-Massey Vanillas - manufacturers of pure vanilla extract and more. beans available - hand-picked for perfection, and the process has begun. Next, an exclusive cold extraction process slowly and gently draws the delicate and distinctive flavor from the vanilla beans. The result is the finest pure vanilla in the world -- perfect for the home cook or the discriminating chef.

Whether it is pure vanilla extract, vanilla powder, vanilla paste, organic vanilla or whole vanilla beans you're looking for, Nielsen-Massey Vanillas has the expertise to provide the highest quality products to fit your need

which vanilla product should I use?

Vanilla, though often thought of as simple, is anything but. Using the proper vanilla, or vanilla blend, for the proper application is an important part of a successful product. Each vanilla has distinct properties which function in different ways depending on the ingredients used and the type of application. Critical to the choice of vanilla for a product, is the application for which it is needed. Read more here.

Nielsen Massey has RECIPES! You know how I love to try a new recipe!

Almost everything that has chocolate or chocolate flavor in it also has vanilla.

Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla

The world’s finest and most consistent vanilla comes from Madagascar. Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla from Nielsen-Massey has a creamy, sweet, velvety flavor that is perfectly suited for a range of products from baked goods to ice creams, salad dressings to barbeque sauces. Madagascar Bourbon vanilla does not have anything to do with the American whiskey of the same name, but is rather named for the Bourbon Islands off the coast of Africa. Madagascar supplies more than 60% of the world’s vanilla.

I was amazed at the difference in my baking with this vanilla! The kids even asked me if something was a new recipe (I get thought a lot, hmm, wonder why?) and I told them old recipe, better vanilla!

So ladies, ingredients do make a difference in baking, but we’ve got you covered because one of you gets to win a bottle of this vanilla!!!!

You can buy Nielsen Massey Vanilla’s at these locations.

Pastry chef and baker Marcy Goldman of www.BetterBaking.com has volunteered to handle all of your baking questions. Just email editors@betterbaking.comfor any culinary query, recommendation or recipes.

Nielsen Massey is giving one lucky Songberries follower their very own bottle of Madagascar Vanilla! To enter go to Nielsen Massey and look around, come back here and tell me in a comment tell me something else you would like to try or something you learned, make sure you’re a follower!

I learned that Thomas Jefferson is credited with introducing vanilla to the United States in the late 1700s. While serving as Ambassador to King Louis XVI of France, he became familiar with vanilla beans, and brought 200 vanilla beans back with him when he returned to the United States. kristiedonelson(at)gmail(dot)com
