I was sent a bottle of Nielsen-Massey's Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract, http://www.nielsenmassey.com/vanillainformation.htm, to use and I was not disappointed in the least.
First I should tell you I have a weak spot for cool antiques and wanna be's. So when I opened the package and saw this beauty staring back at me~
So my handsome bottle made me proud as a decoration until Robert was ready to hook us up with cookies and pies!
I sniffed the bottle while he slaved away, I also am good at licking the spoon.
Oh, it was so good.I wasn't really surprised either because I had high hopes for the extract. Mine is the Madagascar Boubon Pure Vanilla Extract and no it doesn't have any whiskey in it. The Bourbon is referring to the Bourbon Islands off of Africa. Nielsen-Massey Vanillas pride themselves in having the finest extracts. They are even allergen and gluten free.
Nielsen-Massey Vanilla's has all kinds of powders, sugars, pastes, beans and of course extract. Coffee, chocolate, almond and peppermint just to name a few.
I need the whole line for my window sill and Robert needs them to make more amazing treats for the family.
'Tis the season! Check them out to make your holiday baking AMAZING!
