A small dose of heaven and an emblem of the historic Silk Road, Rumi's premier saffron, sourced directly from Afghan farmers, will add deep flavor and a beautiful color to any dish.

Non-GMO, gluten-free, & vegan. No preservatives or additives. 

With the aroma and flavor profile of Rumi Spice saffron, you only need 8-12 threads when cooking rice or risotto for two. The amount of saffron varies by recipe, but a healthy pinch of saffron is a solid benchmark.

Add warm (not boiling) water to the saffron threads in a small dish. A few tablespoons of water is enough. You should see a golden hue begin to emerge in the water. Let the threads soak in water for 5-10 minutes, ideally up to 20 minutes.

After the saffron is finished steeping, you may add the saffron and liquid to whatever you're cooking, such as risotto, paella, or soup. If making a dish or sauce requiring wine, infuse the saffron directly in wine. The compounds are drawn out even further, and the flavor profile is more pronounced.

Another way to bring out the full flavor profile of saffron is to crush the threads with a mortar and pestle to a powder-like consistency. We suggest this for non-liquid recipes or baking, like when making saffron cookies or cake.

I loved it!- but I think that is expensive for what I got.

The flavor wasn't as strong as I 'd hoped for but fair enough. Nevertheless, excellent value for money. Will order again when I've used up this order.
