How do I use Tahitensis vanilla pods?

Cut the pods lengthways and scrape out the pith they contain with the tip of a knife. The vanilla pulp obtained in this way is your spice for delicate vanilla dishes.

You can then put the empty capsule fruit in a glass with sugar or salt for a few weeks to make more vanilla sugar or salt.

Culinary use

The Tahitensis Vanilla is ideal for making vanilla ice cream. Take a pod for up to 2 kg of ice.

You can also use these fruity pods to make cold fruit spreads and compotes or quark dishes.

Furthermore, their aroma goes well with fish, seafood, eggs, strawberries, apples, melon, peach, and rhubarb. Plus, you can mix them well with cardamom, chili, saffron, cloves, and cinnamon in your recipes.


Please transfer all spices into spice jars upon receipt. Vanilla pods, in particular, should be kept hermetically sealed in jars. It is best to store them in a dry, dark place such as a closet or pantry. Under no circumstances should the pods be stored in the refrigerator; otherwise, they could start to go moldy.
