Good luck EvergreenGal, its hard enough finding pure vanilla extract never mind vanilla beans.

I brought back three huge bottles I bought from Costco on my last trip to Toronto. You are more than welcome to some if you need :)

IStar...how kind of you! You know my family here won't know the difference between pure vanilla extract and the stuff you buy here...lol!

I just found on a website of subsitutions that 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract to each 1/2 vanilla bean....so maybe 3 tablespoons to 1 with the BA extract!

Vanilla beans are on sale at Casa Polti in Belgrano. The website is above.

They have vanilla beans at all the "dietéticas" I've been to. I haven't had problems finding the at all.

Maikito, you are oh so right! I just dropped into my local Dietetica and they had them...very nice too....1 long vanilla bean encased in what feels like a light weight glass....1.8 grs. for 9 pesos...

I am happy!!

Thanks to everyone for their suggestions....found it in my own backyard, how cool is that!! :)
