A strong, fragrant spice with a bitter almond and marzipan-like aroma and flavour.
Botanical Name: (Dipteryx odorata)
Description & Use: Use sparingly in dishes that would normally use vanilla beans or mahlab.
Tonka beans may be grated like nutmeg before adding to a recipe or soaked in warm water or milk to infuse the flavour.
Tonka is a strong spice, so only use in similar proportions to nutmeg.
