Madagascar - Sambava, Andapa, Vohemar, Antalaha
Discovered in 2012 during my first trip to Madagascar, it was my most beautiful memory of the country's plantations. I had negotiated a few kilos in a village in the region of Andapa. This quality is really exceptional and represents a tiny part of the vanilla harvest of Madagascar. On the spot, I was surprised to see that nobody was interested in this variety. The producers had explained to me that there were no buyers for this type of vanilla. The volumes were very small and only some plantations had a few vanilla trees. This very large vanilla was used at the time to make vanilla-based braided objects. It seemed incredible to me that no one was interested in this variety. During my research, I understood that it was the result of a "back-cross" between the vanilla planifolia variety (widely spread all over the world) and the vanilla pompona variety which is mainly found in the West Indies and Mexico. The result of this first hybrid was then again "back-crossed" with a planifolia variety. It seems that the Vaitsy cultivar from Costa Rica could also be from the same hybrid strain, which is remarkable
This vanilla is a vanilla for my customers who are looking for rare products. When you discover this quality for the first time, you fall under the spell. Visually it is unlike any other vanilla. From the planifolia (75% of its genetic line), it has the length of the most beautiful vanilla pods of the crop and a generally fruity nose. Veins run along its pod like the bark of a tree. The pompona variety (25% of its genetic line) gives it its aromatic power, which sets off an olfactory firework! You can easily perceive its fruity and caramelized notes as soon as you open the bag. The more complex background notes of leather and coumarin give it its suave and wild richness. While some people take particular care when tasting great wines, I bring the same passion when I discover new batches of vanilla. Depending on the region of production and the know-how of the producer-processor, a vanilla will be completely different. One can find pods of the same variety but with an opposite aromatic profile. This observation is valid for all the vanilla beans and spices I offer, the result of my research and partnerships. The result is a quality that is "off the beaten track", an aromatic amplitude that allows us to make our recipes and our senses travel.My eyes sparkle when I look at it. I go on a trip to the plantations of Madagascar when I look at its aromatic profile.This vanilla is so singular, so rare. When you offer it to yourself, you allow yourself to discover a vintage, an exceptional vintage
If you like to use natural vanilla in your recipes, 2 to 4 cm of vanilla will replace a planifolia vanilla bean. To discover it, I invite you to make a vanilla syrup - long life. This recipe will allow you to use it easily in your desserts and to keep it on hand when you receive people.In a vanilla arranged rum for your pastries (pancakes, crème brûlée, chocolate mousse) or simply as an aperitif. For a 1 litre bottle of white rum 50°C, allow for one Black Gold Tsy taitry vanilla pod. Maceration for a minimum of 1 month without adding sugar.To prepare a sauce that will accompany your fish or meat. You can infuse 3 cm of a Black Gold vanilla pod in 20 cl of fresh cream with 2 g of salt. This base can be improved with a mixture of curry spices or some herbs. Infuse at low temperature (70°C) for 15 minutes. It is simple and so delicious.

Vanilla....what can I say? The beans that I found here are completing my collection for the extract that I am making. They are plump, have a good fragrance, and came well packed.
