So, what is vanilla?

Vanilla is a popular flavoring ingredient with a sweet and creamy taste profile. It is derived from the pod of an orchid plant and is native to Mexico. The pod is harvested and cured through a labor-intensive process, which involves hand-pollination, sun-drying, and aging. The resulting product is a fragrant, dark brown pod that is commonly used to flavor desserts, such as cakes, cookies, and ice cream. Vanilla is also a popular ingredient in perfumes and aromatherapy due to its sweet and comforting scent. Its complex flavor profile makes it a versatile ingredient in both sweet and savory dishes.
