Vanilla beans for extract need to be your first choice if you can only choose from one alternative since it is the most well-liked and convenient to get in stores, at least for all-natural vanilla. The cheapest form of the spice is produced from vanilla beans. While some extracts are made from whole beans, others are produced from bean pods with no specks. The vanilla bean is macerated in a solution of alcohol and water to enhance flavor and extend the shelf life of the beverage. Vanilla beans are soaked in a solution for a while to obtain the strong aromas connected with curing vanilla beans.
