Tonka Beans

60gr

The tonka bean has become an integral part of many desserts and sweets.

Aroma:
The aroma is similar to that of vanilla, with notes of caramel, almond and marzipan and a hint of liquorice.

Use:
The seeds of the tonka tree can be used to refine cream desserts, cookies, cakes, pastries, parfaits, creams, pralines, chocolate, ice creams and puddings and desserts with fruit. An insider tip is to use a touch of tonka bean over fresh strawberries. You can boil the whole bean with jam or porridge, then the fine aroma will unfold. Similar to vanilla, tonka beans can also be used in hearty dishes such as fish, lobster or cream soups, as well as oriental curries and chutneys.

Dosage:
For seasoning, it is usually sufficient to finely rub the whole tonka beans on a nutmeg grater. A knife point is often enough, as the aroma of the tonka bean is very intense and can become very dominant. Tonka beans contain coumarin, but you would have to consume several kilograms of tonka beans per day to achieve the maximum daily amount of 0.1 mg per kilo of body weight. For comparison: one kilogram of tonka beans contains approx. 30 mg of coumarin.

Storage:
Protected from light and aromas in a closed vessel at room temperature, eg in the spice cupboard.
