One-half teaspoon of pure ground vanilla bean powder is approximately equivalent to one teaspoon of pure vanilla extract.
Store in an airtight container, away from light and heat. Stored properly, pure ground vanilla beans will typically keep for at least a year.
Ground vanilla bean powder is a great way to add flavor to foods and beverages while avoiding alcohol or sugar. It’s just a straight-forward, flavorful powder that packs a punch!
Substitute ground vanilla bean powder for vanilla beans in ice cream, custards, sauces — both sweet and savory — and baked goods. To layer flavors, use a base of ground vanilla bean powder and add a splash of vanilla extract to round up vanilla notes.
