Comoros vanilla beans

Great beans. The smell is intoxicating and I put them in a bath of Ever Clear and distilled water to make more extract.

WONDERFUL!

I currently have 2 beans that I am obsessing over lately, and this is one of them!! Just received my 2nd order of these Comoros last week! My first extracts with them are already dark and oily and smell devine, so I had to get some more while I could!! I have had excellent dealings with the SloFoodGroup, so if you haven't tried them yet, don't hesitate!!
