Perfect for those who aren't fond of the alcohol edge that traditional vanilla extract imparts. This unsweetened powder can be substituted for extract (equal measure or to taste) and functions well in liquid/heat sensitive recipes. Great on baked goods, atop dried fruit, in dry mixes (pancakes), substituted for cocoa powder, and as a non-dairy coffee creamer. Also adds flavor while retaining white color to: tapioca, sauces for fruit salads, etc.
Spice Fun Fact: The Aztecs used ground vanilla in their chocolate beverage, chocolatl. When the Spanish discovered this drink, they were so impressed they brought samples back to Spain.
