A great source for Vanilla Beans...

Saffron Threads and a few other things. This link was given to me by a chef who frequents another forum that I'm a member of. He says he orders from this company for his restaurant. I placed an order for a small amount of vanilla beans to see if I would like the quality and I will have to say that I was very pleasantly surprised. The beans are the best I have ever seen and very fresh. I haven't ordered any of the saffron or mushrooms so I can't tell you about them but if they are half as good as the vanilla then they are good.

It looks like Penzey's is a bit more expensive, but I've never been disappointed in any of the spices that I have purchased from them.

They have retail stores in several states, which can be located at their website.


Disclaimer: I do not own any Penzey's stock, nor am I a Penzey's employee. My brother does work part-time for one of their stores (which is how I found out about them).

I've been using Penzey's mail order for several years and they are always outstanding. Love their double-strength vanilla!
