Steve, the owner of Boston Vanilla Bean Company picked the top three ideas for the vanilla he enjoyed the most. Steves choices are:
1. Apple Tatin Tarte made with fresh vanilla beans topped with homemade vanilla bean ice cream by Chef Shari
2. The Vanilla Bean with Steamed Milk with Cinnamon Sticks and Bitter Chocolate by B.B.B.
Steve has informed me that this is an old use for Vanilla Beans and he truly enjoyed the fact that it was mentioned in the giveaway.
3. Vanilla Chai & Lavender infused Rice Pudding by Cate
NOW! It is time for you to vote on the top recipe! The winner will receive 5 Mexican Vanilla Beans, 4 0z. of Vanilla Paste, 4 oz. Vanilla Extracts, and 1 0z. Ground Vanilla
Let me just say, the ground vanilla is grounded up vanilla beans. I have added a tsp. to 8 -10 cps sugar and mixed in my food processor. It works wonders.
