I thought I would start doing a few technique blogs. Short and Sweet!
Check out the attached video for a “how to” on splitting a vanilla bean, it’s two steps and will really BOOST the flavor of ice cream, crème brûlée, pastry cream, whipping cream etc.
If you only need the seeds, you can save the pod and put it in your container of sugar to create a vanilla sugar.
Please let me know if you have a suggestion of something you would like to see!
