Reunion Island is most probably the most advanced when it comes to refining vanilla and the first to study and apply different refining methods, notably to keep the fermentation process going on to produce an extra fresh vanilla, 100% edible, that will keep on developing flavours, fragrances and aromas with age. This vanilla  was refined for 2 years and is much richer in essential oil with stronger and powerful fragrances and aromas, which  requires much less quantities compare to other planifolia beans. It also respects the specifications of the IGP “Vanille de la Réunion” label, which certifies that the vanilla is grown and processed in La Réunion. The beans are typically thick, dark brown or black, extremely aromatic, oily, with supple fruity aromas and caramel notes. Excellent in desserts as well as meat dishes, notably duck and lamb, these beans are better incorporated at the very last stage of cooking since it's almost candied and entirely edibles exactly as it. Chefs and Cheffes highly appreciate this fresh vanilla for these unique properties and for its rarity.
