Derrick and I were lucky enough to travel to Tahiti for our honeymoon, thanks to the generosity of our family and friends who contributed to our honeymoon fund as a wedding gift.
While there we visited Le Vallee de la Vanille on Tahaa Island, a small family-run vanilla plantation producing the most divine vanilla you've ever tasted! We brought back some whole vanilla pods, which I turned into homemade Vanilla Extract for Christmas presents (6 large split vanilla pods to 250ml vodka/rum/whiskey).
I had a leftover vanilla bean so after hearing good things about vanilla honey, I decided to infuse some to see what it tastes like.
Here's what you'll need and how you make it:
Cut your vanilla pod in half scrape the seeds and add them to a clean jar. Then cut your vanilla pod into small sections and add. Pour over your honey.
Leave to infuse for at least a week, turning occasionally to help the flavour infuse.
