Are vanilla beans edible?

ipsedixit | | Feb 22, 2011 08:33 AM

After I've scraped out the seeds, I've been drying my beans, grinding them up in a food processer, and incorporating them in things like graham cracker pie crusts, sugar cookies, and whipped cream and meringues.

But my question is ... is it safe to do so? Are vanilla beans edible?

And, if they are, what do you do with them (if anything)?
