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, or saffron tea.

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.

Good products and a better business model

Products are excellent, and it’s nice to have another saffron to use. Beautiful packaging, as well. But the business idea is terrific: supporting farmers in Afghanistan by buying an outstanding product.

Worth the price

I have been so pleased with Rumi spices that I’m on my third order. I’m glad to know I’m supporting a company that is a good cause.
