Supermarket Saturday: Nielsen-Massey Vanilla Bean Paste

fullsizerender9

One of the most important things I’ve learned over the years is how much the quality of ingredients affect a finished dish. High quality ingredients create tastier food and elevate dishes from good to great with no extra effort.

Nielsen Massey’s Vanilla Bean Paste is like vanilla extract with a touch of magic.  It has a pure, concentrated, sweet vanilla flavor and because it contains actual vanilla beans it also provides visual appeal and sophistication to any dish it touches.  It costs roughly the same as a high quality extract but trust me, it’s infinitely better.  (And no worries if you don’t regularly bake…it can stay on your shelf for up to 3 years.) Expecto delicioso!

Where to buy: Get it on Amazon here. It’s also available at high-end cooking stores like Sur la Table or William Sonoma.
