A niece wants some good vanilla for cooking. Does anyone know where you can buy the real thing these days?

Almost all major grocers, read the label and avoid artificial or diluted products, it will be more expensive.

Thanks but not all the major grocers not Walmart or Bodega Aurrera or Pancho's new store. I haven't been to Soriana yet. Superlake had some. They all seem to contain water-I don't know if that means diluted.

The process by which vanilla is extracted from the beans is a combo of water and alcohol. It's okay.
Clear vanilla is NOT made from vanilla beans.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vanilla_extract

In around 1999, I bought twelve one litre bottles of pure vanilla extract from a grower while vacationing in Veracruz. It cost 20 pesos a bottle. Great stuff and made wonderful gifts. Those were the days.

I looked on my bottle of really good vanilla and it has the vanilla, water and alcohol. The alcohol burns off. There was some adulterated vanilla years ago that contained, I think, coumadin. Buy only the ingredients I listed.
