Thick vanilla extract

Super thick vanilla extract
Vanilla tahitensis

This weekend I filtered the extract of Madagascar planifolia and Papua New Guinea tahitensis vanilla beans from Vanilla Products USA. This picture shows the thick, viscous extract from 4 oz (1/4 lbs) tahitensis vanilla beans soaked in about 2 cups (500ml) of vodka. Vanilla extract can become thick because vanilla beans contain 25% sugars.
