Think all vanilla pods are same? Think again. This is one of the best brands on the shelves, with absolutely bags of flavour.

The product:
Vanilla is a remarkable spice. The true nature of its flavour is tough to pin down – unlike fiesty cinammon, fiery ginger or spicy star anise, it acts more like a flavour enhancer than a taste of its own, making custard creamier, ice cream more rounded and sponge somehow richer. But all vanilla is not created equal.

The verdict:
Taylor and Colledge bills itself as a premium vanilla brand – so I tested it with a batch of homemade vanilla ice cream and a single vanilla pod. That way, there’s nowhere for the flavour to hide. The pod itself wasn’t too dry and cut easily down the middle, and a scrape of the knife freed a lot of beans into the custard. Cooled, churned and frozen, it made an ice cream with a fantastically indulgent punch of vanilla. I think it’s one of the best quality vanilla pods I’ve come across.
