Organic Pompona Vanilla from Mexico: A unique vanilla experience
Origin: Mexico / Jalisco & Nayarit - Naturally Pollinated, Ripe Harvest and Dried
Discover the fascinating diversity of the Mexican pompona vanilla bean, a vanilla variety that is mainly grown in South America and specifically in the Mexican states of Jalisco and Nayarit.
These pods are particularly unique as they grow wild and are naturally pollinated by bees and hummingbirds. They are prized for their distinct flavor and aroma, which is often described as floral, fruity and spicy, with more tannin and subtle notes of dark chocolate, caramel and tobacco. They are characterized by their plump, fleshy pods and high moisture content. Their size and shape make them ideal for use in cooking and baking, as well as for making vanilla extract.
Mexican pompona vanilla beans are also known for their comparatively high vanillin content for this variety, giving them a bold, sweet and creamy flavor that is appreciated by chefs and home cooks alike. This flavor profile works particularly well in desserts like ice cream, puddings and cakes, and can also be used to add depth and complexity to savory dishes like roasted meats and vegetables.
The pods measure around 14 cm and weigh an average of 22 g. One kilo equals about 45 pods. Moisture content: 40% Vanillin content: +/- 1% Packaging: in glass tubes or glass jars certified Mexico origin
