purevanilla_01197Shipped in 6-ounce bottles, Watkins Pure Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Extract is the cream de la cream of vanilla extracts. Watkins purchases only the best of the best, finest Madagascar vanilla beans our experts can buy, using an entire pound of these beans to make just one gallon of vanilla. When you consider the fact that vanilla beans of lesser quality sell in the U.S. for $3.00 each, you’ll understand why our 6-ounce bottles of “Pure Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Extract” is sold at such a bargain price.

There is a difference between our Pure Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Extract and our world-famous Watkins Original Double Strength Vanilla that vanilla consumers need to know about. The formula in our Original Double Strength Vanilla Extract has less alcohol and special stabilizers added to it so that it holds up well under baking and freezing conditions. Many pies, deserts and ice cream require freezing, while cakes, pies, cookies, etc. require backing. Thus, if you’re purchasing Vanilla Extract to bake something or prepare a food item that requires freezing, I highly recommend you try Watkins Original Double Strength Vanilla.

However, if you’re purchasing vanilla extract to make mousses, flans, buttercream frostings, whipped creams and the like, you’ll want to buy Watkins Pure Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Extract, where it excels over all vanilla flavorings and extracts in the world. This is a very important fact to remember about vanilla extracts, because the important topnotes that make pure vanilla extract truly distinctive are very volatile. This means that when used in food products that require high heat (like making candy, for example), the top ends can boil off and damaged the golden vanilla flavor you were hoping to achieve.

Thus, when baking, freezing and cooking at high temperatures, use Watkins Original Double Strength Vanilla Extract, but when making sweetened whipped cream, buttercream frostings, flans and other food or desert products at normal or cool temperatures, by all means go with Watkins Pure Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Extract, and cook like a pro!
