Pandan Essence

Pandan is a long leaf that is used in certain Asian dishes, both savoury and sweet. As an essence, it is used like vanilla essence is used in Western cooking. As it is a green leaf, the essence will be green, and any baked goods or drinks that you put it into will also be green. I can't really say how it tastes, even.

I am looking for pandan essence and wonder where you got yours? I am missing my Malaysian food and I live in Dunnville, ON...about 30 mins from Hamilton ;)

It's pretty common, you should be able to get it in any good Chinese supermarket.
