Tips & Usage

With the aroma and rich flavor profile of Rumi Spice saffron, you only need a small pinch to infuse your favorite dishes with a bold world of flavor. For liquid recipes, steep the saffron in a few tablespoons of warm (not boiling) water. Let the threads soak for about 15 minutes and watch a golden hue begin to emerge. After the saffron is finished steeping, add it to the liquid in your favorite dishes like saffron rice, paella, saffron tea, or even saffron ice cream.

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

Absolutely the best Saffron

I've used saffron for years. After a friend taught me several Spanish recipes. Always realizing the powdered saffron was not entirely the real deal. Taste was close but not right. In more ethnic neighborhoods I did find saffron threads.I became so excited when your company came to exist. I was impressed at the first taste.The flavor profile is exceptional.the aroma is intoxicating. The company was imagined and created by former military and Afghani women are being helped . Every time I indulge in the saffron, I give a party to my taste buds.

Amazing Saffron

I have been using Rumi saffron for several years. It is by far the best quality saffron on the market. The fact that their spices are ethically sourced and sippy rural Afghanistan is amazing.
