RECIPE: How much are vanilla beans where you are?
I was shocked when I started to buy some vanilla beans last Saturday. They were $19. I only need one-half of a bean, so I decided to use vanilla extract instead. Then, yesterday (Sunday) I went to The World Market, which is new here. I found vanilla beans for $3.
I love the results of using vanilla beans in my baking, but there is no way in he!! I would pay $19 for them. How much are they where you live?
