How to clean a Tahitian Vanilla Bean

Tahitian vanilla beans are indeed something special, so much so that they can even be cleaned using an alternative method that won't work for other vanilla beans. The method is super simple and you can learn how in this short video!

Check out this great video for a quick and easy tip on how to effortlessly clean our delicious Tahitian Vanilla beans from Tahiti, by Pastry Chef Kriss Harvey of the SLS Beverly Hills. While this trick only works with this specific vanilla beans from Tahiti, we do carry many other great varieties of vanilla beans that are sure to suit your needs.

There are a few ways to clean other vanilla beans. Here's just one: 

Cut each vanilla bean in half, lengthwise and lay it outer-pod-side down. Using the back of a knife (or an oyster shucker, or the back of a spoon), gently scrape the seeds out by running the dull side of the knife down from end-to-end. Use the seeds in your favorite recipes, or try one of ours!
