Just last week, I was watching my favourite Canadian talk show and they were doing holiday round-up type shows to get us ready for the holidays. The day I was watching was all about what cooks need in their kitchens this holiday season. The show featured everything from big and small appliances to the must have spices and flavours.
A must have for your kitchen and mine, is Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract.
Good vanilla is a definite, and anyone who uses it will tell you that.
This time last year, I received a 59ml bottle of Nielsen-Massey vanilla and I've enjoyed it so much over that time. There is a huge difference over the artificial vanilla I was using prior. Everything I've put the vanilla into has a noticeable, superior taste.
Nielsen-Massey is a family run business, who has been crafting the finest extracts for more than 100 years
You already know I love the pure vanilla extract I received. This holiday season the good folks at Nielsen-Massey offered to send along a couple of other flavours to give a try.
Pure Chocolate Extract
I have never used a chocolate extract before, so at first I was a little stumped as how I should be using it in my kitchen. Then, I read that I could replace chocolate extract for cocoa powder.Pure Chocolate Extract Crafted from the finest cocoa beans, our Pure Chocolate Extract embodies the uninhibited depth and flavor of dark chocolate. This extract is ideal for adding extra layers of this divine flavor to any recipe with chocolate as the base. Also, use it to add subtle distinction to a wide range of dishes, including beverages, desserts, sauces, chilis and other spicy foods.
Pure Peppermint Extract
Pure Peppermint Extract Peppermint, and its use in candy canes, ice creams and cookies, has long been a favorite of the holiday season, but its culinary uses don't have to end with the return of spring. Crafted from the finest mint oils under the strictest quality standards, our Pure Peppermint Extract is perfect for flavoring teas and complementing chocolate in cakes, icings and ice cream.Next to vanilla - peppermint is my second favourite flavour. Again, I had artificial peppermint in my cupboard, which has now found a home in the trash. Nielsen-Massey has the most delicious peppermint extract and I've enjoyed using it in my favourite cake icing.
Take your kitchen to next level, by simply changing your artificial extracts to pure extracts from Nielsen-Massey. This would be a great gift idea for the foodie in your life. Find out where to buy and enjoy a gift of taste this holiday season.
