What is Uganda Gourmet Vanilla?

My Gourmet vanilla is an exceptional vanilla. It is not well known, yet it deserves the utmost respect. This Ugandan vanilla grows on the green slopes of eastern Uganda. Here, all the climatic and soil conditions are present to make a great vanilla. But my Gourmet vanilla is not like any other product. It's not all about the soil or the climate, it's about the specific culture. You are probably familiar with late harvest when it comes to wine. The Ugandan producers I found use this principle by harvesting the pods at full maturity. They are so mature that some are already split at the time of harvest. It is this specific treatment of the pods that makes this product such a strong tasting vanilla.

What is the flavor of Uganda Gourmet Vanilla?

Uganda Gourmet Vanilla is a product with very cocoa-like and intense flavors. I like this very vanilla and wild aspect that brings character to the dishes. The heart notes are caramel, hay, woody, phenolic, balsamic and vanilla powder for a vanilla that is simply inimitable.

Harvesting Uganda Gourmet Vanilla

The plant that produces Uganda vanilla is the vanilla planifolia, the same as that of Madagascar. However, its pods are a little larger and a little less fatty. After harvesting, they are treated like all vanillas following a precise process whose last step is drying, a crucial step that will reveal all the flavors of this exceptional product.

How to use Uganda Gourmet Vanilla

This very intense vanilla is absolutely ideal for savory dishes, although it can also be used in sweet dishes. Here are some recipes with Uganda Gourmet Vanilla to discover.
