It’s the time of the year where I start stocking up on my baking supplies. I try to use nothing but the very best ingredients in the year’s most important cookies! As Ina Garten always says it’s best to use “good” vanilla. Of course you can buy imitation, but the taste just won’t be the same.
Heilala Vanilla has been the manufacturer and distributor of a premium line of award-winning vanilla products since 2002. Grown out of New Zealand, Heilala’s product line consists of Vanilla Beans, Vanilla Extract, Vanilla Paste, Vanilla Sugar, Vanilla Powder and Vanilla Syrup. Heilala’s Vanilla is the only in the world that is direct from the plantation to the pantry, with no outside distributors. Heilala follows Fair Trade practices.
My husband and I love using pure Vanilla products and I was very excited to try something I have never before tried — Vanilla Sugar! Heilala starts with a premium organic golden sugar that is infused with their vanilla extract, then mixed with finely ground Vanilla Beans. Doesn’t that just sound heavenly? Heilala’s Vanilla Sugar is perfect for freshly baked biscuits, cakes, muffins, french toast or pancakes!
I’ve seen high end vanilla out in specialty shops and kitchen stores and I think Heilala’s prices are just excellent!
