So here's a sneak peak at the pods after almost 24hrs of sweating. Changing colour nicely. The picture makes them look a lot darker than they actually are. The aroma is gently increasing.

So here is my setup I'm using for the sunning and sweating now. Bay6 tent (75 × 75 × 130). 400w sunmaster on digital ballast in a coolshade. The cool shade extractor fan is hooked up to a temperature controller on the cooling setting to keep the temp at 50°C. Theres a tower fan to give some air movement also. The pods are laid on a clean black blanket and sunned for 3 hrs then returned to the sweating box each day for the next 10 - 14 days.



Bio Green Thermo 2 temperature controller.



Pods laid out sunning away. I turn them over after 1.5 hours of sunning.

Definitely some creme anglais (custard). Ice cream for sure. A chef friend tells me that carrot and vanilla soups good so will try that.

Thanks for all the detail here, superb piece of work Clarence.

Have you got some recipes in mind when you are finished up on the pods?

Vanilla now will spend up to 35 days in this Germanus humidor. This will keep them at an RH of 70%. Should be kept at around 35°C. This is the slow drying stage. On completion of slow drying the pods get heavy longitudinal wrinkles, turn lustrous with a brownish black colour whilst become supple. They can be rolled around finger easy and on release spring back straight. The moisture content should be somewhere between 30 - 35%.

Beauty Clarence... so many possibilities with vanilla! I didn't know the process of curing it was so involved!
