The vanilla pod is the fruit of a tropical orchid that grows in Madagascar. The pod is about ten inches long and contains black seeds. But it is the whole content that is used as a spice. The Aztecs used vanilla to flavor chocolate, and the Spanish brought it to Europe in the 16th century. Today, Madagascar is the major supplier of quality vanilla, which is the most expensive spice after saffron. It is therefore often substituted with synthetic vanillin – made from rotted spruce – in most industrially manufactured products in the grocery store.
Bourbon Vanilla is called that because it comes from the islands of the Indian Ocean, like Madagascar, the Comori Islands, and Réunion, which was once called Ile Bourbon.
