What is Vanuatu vanilla?

Located above New Caledonia, Vanuatu is a small country made up of about 80 islands. If you are familiar with New Caledonian vanilla, Vanuatu vanilla is more confidential. This does not detract from its quality, quite the contrary.

This heavenly territory is home to vanilla plantations that flourish in an environment where the climate is extremely favourable to the development of magnificent vanilla pods. Vanilla trees flourish in the volcanic soil of the Melanesian archipelago, which gives it its specific taste.

The Vanuatu people grow vanilla planifolia in the heart of the Coral Sea. If this name is familiar to you since it is the most cultivated vanilla, ahead of vanilla pompona and vanilla tahitensis, you will discover new gustatory horizons here. If the nature of the orchid itself is important, the land on which it is grown also has an impact on the taste of vanilla.

What does Vanuatu vanilla taste like?

Vanuatu vanilla develops very specific flavours. You will fall under the spell of its fruity and slightly woody notes, with a discreet hint of cocoa. It is a small festival of flavours that I suggest you discover.

The harvest of Vanuatu vanilla

Vanuatu vanilla, grown on the volcanic lands of the Melanesian archipelago, is a product that has very beautiful pods. Brown, shiny and with some marbling, they are very fleshy, this vanilla asserts its generous character. The pods are picked when they are very ripe and are matured for a long time to develop all the flavours of this vanilla.

How to use Vanuatu vanilla?

Vanuatu vanilla is a small revolution in your kitchen. You will love its complex and reassuring flavours.

Our recipe ideas with Vanuatu vanilla

Sea bream tartar with Vanuatu vanilla

Cultivated in the heart of the Coral Sea, this vanilla goes perfectly with fish. As a starter, I suggest a small tartar of sea bream to whet your appetite. Take some nice fillets of sea bream and cut them into small cubes. Slice an onion and finely chop some chives. Split the vanilla pod and remove the seeds, which you will place in olive oil with lemon, mustard, salt and pepper. Add the onion and chives and mix well. Add the sea bream and put it in the fridge for one hour.

Papillote of cod with vanilla sauce

Prepare your papillote by putting cod fillets, salt, pepper, olive oil and grated vegetables (courgettes, carrots, etc.) according to your taste. Scrape a vanilla bean, remove the seeds and mix them with the butter. Brown a shallot in a pan with white wine and let it reduce. Add the vanilla butter and then the cream, making sure to whip it well (you can add a little flour to thicken it, but not too much). Serve your fish and drizzle with Vanuatu vanilla butter sauce.

Vanuatu Vanilla Cream Cake

Sometimes the simplest recipes are the best. To make this extremely moist cake, whip fresh cream and whole eggs in a bowl. In another bowl, mix flour, sugar, yeast and split Vanuatu vanilla beans. Add the powders to the cream/egg mixture as you go along, making sure to whisk well to avoid lumps. Pour into a buttered pan and bake at 180° for 45 minutes.

The health benefits of Vanuatu vanilla

Vanuatu vanilla, like all vanillas, is a product with multiple virtues that will be the best ally for your well-being.

It is a natural antidepressant and a stimulant that reduces the effects of fatigue. Rich in polyphenols, vanilla is an antioxidant that slows down the aging of cells.

Vanilla also has aphrodisiac virtues and will be your best ally in the context of a diet because of its sweetening power with very few calories.

Finally, vanilla promotes digestion and stimulates the appetite.

The conservation of Vanuatu vanilla
