Local Killah Vanilla
Canele rely on superb vanilla notes. I've used a bunch of different vendors for vanilla but so far Vanilla Products, a dealer in Doylestown, is tops. It is claimed that the Indo beans work best for long, hot cooking dishes. These beans are meaty with moderate caviar and excellent aroma they have a light but firm vanilla flavor. They are about a buck each by the quarter pound. Beans in S Philly go for $2.50 each and fancy beans at WholeFoods are about $7 each!
