Thanks for this! I've been looking for a reasonable price on pure vanilla for a while. I used to get Costco's but even it is getting crazy expensive. I just finished a 100 Ml bottle of this particular vanilla from Winners. I like the fragrance (it's quite floral) and the flavour is nice.

A cyclone in Madagascar (the world's top producer) wiped out 1/3rd of their crops last year. It'll be awhile til it dips back to normal unless people accept this as the new norm like PC HDDs. Winking Face

If you want to save even more money for the future, go to the Bulk Barn or other bulk store and buy some vanilla pods. Usually around $5-10 for 2. Slice down the bean and put it in a bottle with Vodka and let infuse for a couple of months. Excellent tasting.

Interesting
1/3 of crop is destroyed and so the price doubles.
More profit for less work

A combination of things.

Low price 5 years ago pushed a lot of farmers into more profitable crops cutting the supply.
Recent bad weather has been devastating the Madagascar crops cutting the supply even more.
The current push for healthier more natural options has caused a spike in demand.
Brokers who buy the beans from the farmers and resell to manufacturers are hoarding the supply to raise prices and their profits.

That might be good tasting vodka
but is it good enough for baking?

I remember buying the Costco 473mL bottles for $7.99 a couple years ago, but now they're $38.99 or something stupid. I still have some left and not buying any more until it comes back down.

I have made homemade vanilla before but I found I needed about 6 - 8 pods for a 750 ml of vodka. That works out to about $30 for beans and $26 for vodka so $56 for 750 ml and this is $70 for 3785ml.

We have used 1 bean and just left it longer. Bought the Vodka in the States, so around 15$.

I’ve never tried the brand others are linking from Amazon, but the stuff I made tasted damn close to the Costco brand.

I have yet to try it but if you have a Instant pot making vanilla extract is a breeze.

That sounds interesting. Do you have a link to the recipe?
