This short video shows how to use a fresh vanilla bean and how to harvest the seeds from withing the vanilla bean.
1 large fresh vanilla bean
Split open the vanilla bean with a paring knife. Use the back if the knife to scrape the seeds from the bean. Be sure to save the beans and place them in sugar or even steep them in milk to create “vanilla milk”
Chef’s Notes: I prefer vanilla from Madagascar or Tahiti. I steer clear of Mexican vanilla.[/private]
