Ugandan vanilla was a wonderful discovery for me. Cultivated in the west of the country, near the Congolese and Rwandan borders, it grows on green slopes. Ugandan vanilla is little known to the general public. And yet, it is to be discovered. Like the vanilla of Madagascar, it is the Planifolia vanilla, a vanilla tree that produces very beautiful fleshy pods full of black beans that will bring exoticism to all your dishes. If the Ugandan vanilla reminds us of the Madagascar vanilla with its cocoa and fruity notes, its fiber is broad and flat like the Comoros'. It is distinguished by its pearly black pod and the intensity of its fragrance. I can only invite you to discover this exceptional product. To try it is to adopt it.
The principle of vanilla pollination is quite specific. Vanilla was originally grown in Mexico. In this country, there is an endemic bee capable of pollinating vanilla and thus naturally developing beautiful beans. When the Spaniards, during colonization, decided to export vanilla and grow it themselves, they were not aware of this information. It was not until the 19th century and the intervention of a Reunionese slave, Edmond Albius, that the secret of pollination was discovered. In Uganda, as in Madagascar, there is no pollinating bee for vanilla, so a manual process is used. It is the flower brides who are in charge of this step which consists, thanks to a thorn, of tearing the cap of the vanilla flower so that the male and female organs can come into contact and produce, several months later, very beautiful fleshy pods.
Ugandan vanilla is a rare product of very high quality. We could speak of a great vintage of vanilla, so much its intense flavours delight the taste buds. I have chosen to offer you a batch of 2 beans that will allow the most curious among you to taste it. With my 2 Uganda vanilla beans, I propose you a culinary journey to the heart of Africa and its magnificent wild landscapes. If this tasting seduces you, you should know that I also sell a batch of 10 Ugandan vanilla beans. With this fabulous product, you will be able to embellish in the best way your sweet recipes. But it is also your savoury dishes that will take on a whole new dimension with my Ugandan vanilla. Just imagine for a moment a blanquette of veal with vanilla, a chicken with exotic flavours, and even a pot-au-feu. Sounds surprising? It used to be for me too. If you want an amazing culinary experience, I invite you to try incorporating vanilla into your traditional savoury dishes.

Je n'ai pas encore testé la qualité des gousses mais la commande s'est très bien passée, le vendeur a été très professionnel et m'a tenu au courant de toute les étapes d'envois pendant la période difficile du confinement. Il est arrivé rapidement malgré les circonstances. Très bon contact, je recommande.
