Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract Review & Giveaway


Nielsen-Massey recently sent me a bottle of their Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract. I was excited to try this because all I've ever used in the kitchen is imitation vanilla. When I received the pure vanilla extract, I quickly looked through the Nielsen-Massey Recipes page for something to make. The Crème Brulee French Toast sounded amazingly decadent, so I had my wife pick up the ingredients we didn't already have.



Of course, I made my usual mistake of not reading the recipe thoroughly enough. I had planned to make this for dinner one night this week and realized as I was completing the first part of the recipe that it had to sit in the refrigerator over night. So, the next morning, I pulled the pan out of the refrigerator and placed it in the oven. 40 minutes later, I pulled it out and we dug in. It tasted great, although it was very sweet.



Here's what Nielsen-Massey's web site says about the 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.
