Vanilla Bean Plants (Vanilla planifolia) - How to Grow a Vanilla Bean Plant at Home - A vining orchid native to Mexico, vanilla bean is a popular spice
They are not as practical to grow as they are fun to bake with but growing them can be a totally different kind of fun. Growing plants is much more fun for me than cooking and baking is and I enjoy cooking.I want to get a greenhouse to grow my own Cocoa, Coffee and Vanilla because I'm a chocoholic plus my dad is a coffee nut. As for Vanilla, We love baking with it.
But is it as practical to grow as is it fun to bake with the 3 ingredients?
If "global warming" means the climate changes enough to make tropical regions too hot for those plants, you won't need the greenhouse in your location.I want to grow cocoa, coffee and vanilla in a greenhouse because climate change will make those 3 crops extinct.
There has to be a solution to the cocoa, coffee and vanilla problem.
This is huge in all areas of life, I find. My memére used to say "if you don't expect, you won't be disappointed."Managing expectations is more important than luxuries.
I agree that it is so expensive!! I am glad to hear you don't use it anymore - I'll follow your lead. Do you mean maple syrup when you say maple or does it have to have an alcohol in it to work properly? I'm curious about making it. I'm sure the bean is sky high now too, not sure where to get it actually.i've made vanilla from the vanilla bean and vodka. all that stuff is gone sky high in price now. you dont really need the vanilla. i dont buy it anymore. i use kahlua or rum,maple etc. in place of it because i had plenty on hand when prices started to rise. also had plenty coffee and cocoa. as far as i know most things are still going to be available but cost more. at least that's what my son keeps telling me. ~Georgia
