Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract
Taking premium, hand-selected beans cultivated on the Bourbon Island of Madagascar, we use our proprietary cold extraction process to gently draw out and preserve the vanilla’s over 300 flavor compounds. The result is a sweet, creamy, mellow flavor with velvety after-tones, perfect for cooking and baking both sweet and savory dishes. An exceptional “all-purpose” vanilla.
One tablespoon of vanilla extract is equivalent to one vanilla bean.
Available in 2-, 4- , 8- and 32-ounce bottles. This product is Kosher and Gluten-Free Certified as well as All-Natural and Allergen-Free.

Here is one of them, One of my favorites. I made this and it is amazing with the Vanilla I received Creamy Vanilla Sweet Potatoes. My family loved this recipe, it has become a regular in our house.
Creamy Vanilla Sweet Potatoes
4 medium sweet potatoes
2 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1/4 cup real maple syrup
1 tablespoon Nielsen-Massey Tahitian Pure Vanilla Extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
5 strips bacon, crisp-cooked and crumbled
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Wash the sweet potatoes and lightly coat the skins with canola oil. Pierce each potato several times with a fork. Place the potatoes on a foil-lined baking sheet. Bake for 1 hour or until fork tender.
Cut the hot potatoes into halves. Scoop the potato pulp into a mixing bowl, discarding the skins. Beat at medium speed for 1 minute using an electric mixer. Add the cream cheese, butter, syrup, vanilla extract, salt and pepper. Whip until creamy.
Spoon the whipped potatoes into six ramekins coated with nonstick cooking spray and top with the bacon. Place the ramekins on a baking sheet. Bake in a preheated 375-degree oven for 5 to 8 minutes or until heated through. Alternatively, they may be reheated in a microwave for 2 to 3 minutes.
