Indonesian Vanilla Extract

The Indonesian beans in this vanilla extract are renowned for their woody, smoky flavor profile. This distinctive profile complements rich desserts, especially those that include chocolate, like brownies and ice cream. The unique curing process used in Indonesia creates flavor that offers heat stability allowing it to be added earlier in recipes without degrading.

Our pure vanilla extract is made from premium, hand-selected vanilla beans. A cold extraction process gently preserves more than 300 delicate flavors, resulting in a strong, upfront vanilla profile with woody, smoky notes. This extract holds its flavor better than many other vanillas, making it ideal for high-heat and slow-baked applications, such as cakes, cookies and creme brulee. Indonesian vanilla also complements the sweetness in chocolate and dairy-based recipes, adding a layer of complexity.

This vanilla is sourced from Indonesia (Vanilla planifolia). Like all natural vanilla, the mature green bean does not contain any characteristic aroma and flavor develops during postharvest processing, known as curing. In the case of Indonesia, a multistep curing system is utilized. After scalding, the beans are placed in a curing barrel for up to a year. During this time, the curing system continuously rotates and checks for moisture levels. The more moisture in the beans, the longer the beans will cure.

Although the volcanic eruption in Indonesia has displaced many people and caused severe damage, the majority of the vanilla crop is located far away from the lava flows on the islands. As a result, we do not anticipate any significant impact to the vanilla supply from this region.

Almond Extract

Almond extract is one of the most versatile ingredients on any kitchen’s shelf. It pairs well with vanilla, chocolate, maple and butterscotch and can even be used alone to create a rich and sophisticated flavor profile in baked goods like cookies, cakes, bars and pastries. It also makes a fantastic addition to sweet beverages such as milkshakes, horchata and smoothies.

Aside from its use in sweet dishes and beverages, almond Milk Flavor Extract extract is also a popular ingredient for savory cuisines. Adding just a drop of it to marinades for meat or poultry can bring a unique dimension of flavor that isn’t commonly associated with these dishes. It can be used to elevate Asian dishes by adding subtle nutty flavors to soy sauce-based stir-fries. Similarly, it can be added to Indian recipes to add depth to creamy korma curries.

The nutty essence of almond extract pairs exceptionally well with fruit as well. It has a special affinity for raspberries, strawberries, peaches, raisins and plums and can be added to any recipe that includes these Baking Flavoring ingredients to create a delicious and unique taste profile. It also adds great flavor to salad dressing, sauces and custards. It can even be incorporated into desserts like ice cream or coconut almond jelly to enhance the natural sweetness of these treats. This particular brand of almond extract is made by Nielsen-Massey, which has been around since 1907 and offers a high-quality product with a good reputation among bakers and culinary experts.

Chocolate Extract

The most popular and versatile flavor in the world, chocolate can be used to enhance and intensify virtually any recipe. It is a key ingredient in everything from chocolate cakes and cookies to milkshakes, beverages and even ice cream.

Unlike vanilla extract, which contains only a small amount of alcohol, chocolate extract is made without heat to avoid compromising the true flavor of cocoa beans and it has a powerfully intense aroma and taste (even though, like all extracts, it also has a strong alcohol note). This dark-brown elixir will instantly add rich, deep cocoa notes to your favorite recipes and mixes, transforming them into something much more delicious and satisfying.

Our extracts are all-natural and gluten free, with no sugar added. They’re also Kosher Certified by Central California Kosher and contain no animal products. Simply add to your beverage or bake recipe as you would any other extract, using one to three teaspoons for a full recipe or 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon for a single serving.

Strawberry Extract

A strawberry extract is a very concentrated liquid that is chock-full of strawberry flavor. It’s made by taking strawberries and letting them soak in alcohol for a long period of time (we’re talking weeks to months). Then, the mixture is strained to get rid of all the bigger chunks of strawberry and voila! Strawberry extract is super versatile and can be used in all sorts of applications. You can use it to make strawberry milk, chocolate strawberry smoothies, or even bake cakes and cupcakes that taste like strawberries.

When making strawberry milk, you will need some type of sweetener to balance out the sweetness. We recommend using a natural sugar, such as maple syrup or honey. You can also try adding a pinch of baking powder to the mix as well.

Strawberry extract can be found in many recipes online for strawberry milk. However, we recommend only using a few drops of the extract since it is so concentrated. We also recommend trying a small batch first to see how the flavor works out for you.

If you are looking to create a signature dairy product that will stand out in the marketplace, then it is essential that you use high-quality flavors and extracts. Using low-quality ingredients will never produce the amazing flavor that your dairy product deserves.
