An abundance of pure Afghan saffron in a classic round tin. Rumi Afghan saffron is known for being the world's highest quality saffron. This is used by world-class chefs and Michelin-star restaurants. Perfect option for restaurants, saffron-themed dinner parties, and much more! 

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.

Committed to empowering Afghan women and bolstering the country’s economy, Rumi also reinvests profits back into the agricultural and manufacturing infrastructure for farmers.
