How to Use Tahitensis Vanilla Pods

To use Tahitensis vanilla pods, cut them lengthwise and scrape out the flavorful pulp with the tip of a knife. This rich vanilla pulp can be used to enhance delicate vanilla dishes.

Afterward, you can place the empty pods in a jar with sugar or salt for a few weeks to create vanilla-infused sugar or salt.

Culinary Applications

Tahitensis Vanilla pods are perfect for making vanilla ice cream. One pod is sufficient for up to 2 kg of ice cream.

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

Furthermore, their aroma pairs well with fish, seafood, eggs, strawberries, apples, melon, peach, and rhubarb. They also complement flavors of cardamom, chili, saffron, cloves, and cinnamon in various recipes.


Please transfer all spices into airtight spice jars upon receipt. Vanilla pods, in particular, should be kept hermetically sealed. Store them in a dry, dark place such as a closet or pantry. Avoid refrigerating the pods, as it may lead to mold growth.
