Hardly any spice enchants us more than the almond-shaped seed of the tonka tree. The essential oils of tonka beans exude a fragrance of almonds, vanilla, woodruff and fresh hay and bewitch our senses. The spice is said to have an erotic and even hypnotic effect. Tonka bean is often used as a vanilla substitute. Due to its very special character with a fine-harsh note, the Tonka bean should not be reduced exclusively to sweet dishes. The original home of the Tonka bean is Venezuela. From there the tonka tree has spread naturally over large parts of South America. Besides Venezuela, the main cultivation areas today are the north of Brazil, Guyana or Suriname. In South America the plant is said to have healing powers and is used as a lucky charm. In Europe the tonka bean was temporarily banned as food because of its coumarin content. The ban was lifted in 1991, but only in recent years has it established itself as an absolute trend spice. Tonka should be dosed very sparingly as a spice. Depending on the use, it is recommended to boil the beans in milk for a few minutes or rub them a little with a nutmeg grater for desserts based on milk.
