A Vanilla Bean Paste Haiku
I had to look up the rules for a haiku. Was 7th grade that long ago? Wait was it even 7th grade where we learned that?
Regardless - I wanted to profess my unabashed love of vanilla bean paste. You can use it in place of vanilla extract and it since it contains bits of the seeds it feels super fancy, but since you can also use it in place of real vanilla bean, it feels super frugal too. Without further ado - my vanilla bean paste haiku:
Fragrant but sticky
cheapness never so fancy
Seedy and smooth
Apologies if I got it all wrong - wikipedia is suppose to be a reliable source right?
Vanilla Bean Paste via the web: here, here, and here.
Ps. If you are in the greater Metro Atlanta area, Your Dekalb Farmers Market has got the best price around.
