This plant is not edible, but it smells like it is. It's vanilla scented. I bought this plant last summer at the farmers market. It died back over the winter, but I pruned it and repotted in fresh soil this spring, and it has made a nice comeback.
Since were talking about vanilla.......
did you know you could make your own vanilla extract? Just add 5 fresh whole vanilla beans (slit down the center) to a bottle of vodka and let it infuse for at least 6 weeks. Use in baking just like vanilla extract.
