If you’re baking cakes and cookies this holiday and need vanilla beans, you can find the Kirkland Signature Vanilla Beans at Costco.
These are vanilla beans from Madagascar.
You can use vanilla bean in place of vanilla extract in your recipes.
1 vanilla bean = 1 teaspoon extract
The rich and creamy vanilla flavor we all love so much comes from the seeds inside the bean pod.
To get to them, lay the bean flat and cut lengthwise. Open the bean and scrape the seeds out of the pod. It’s that easy.
Vanilla beans are very expensive in other stores. I made the mistake of buying them at Safeway once. Never again! I don’t remember the exact price but will do a post on the price comparison soon.
These Kirkland Signature Vanilla Beans are packaged in 2 vials, with 5 vanilla beans in each vial, so you get 10 vanilla beans per pack.
It is priced at $11.99.
Unit price is $1.20/vanilla bean.
Item number 296586.
Inventory and pricing at your store will vary and are subject to change at any time.
