Product: Cooking Extracts & powders
I love finding new things to cook with. Our spice cabinet is overflowing with spices, powders, and extracts from different places. My husband is the worst offender when it comes to collecting these. He will buy a huge bottle of something to use in one recipe and then we normally never use it again.
He also loves barbecuing so when I was contacted to review the Pure Vanilla & Chocolate Extract from Nielsen-Massey I was excited because it mentioned using them as BBQ rubs or sauces.
The Pure Vanilla came in a powder and the Chocolate Extract was in liquid form. We decided to make a BBQ sauce with the pure vanilla to start. It turned out great! We made it to use on a pork tenderloin my husband grilled. It gave it a sweet undertone but it was still spicy.
I have yet to try the chocolate extract yet but I tasted a little and it smells and tasted great. I think I will try to bake something with it.
Give the BBQ sauce a try with the recipe below!
- 2 tablespoons Nielsen-Massey Pure Vanilla
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 3 tablespoons maple syrup
- 2 teaspoons hot sauce (adjust to taste)
- 1 teaspoon natural hickory liquid smoke

- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup ketchup
- In a small saucepan, melt butter over low heat.
- Add maple syrup, hot sauce, liquid smoke, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, salt, ketchup & vanilla extract; stir to combine.
- Simmer for 10-15 minutes; stirring occasionally.
