I bought this to make saffron rice for a late summer bbq with lamb koftas and some spicy sausages. I absolutely love the delicate flavours of saffron, it feels quite luxurious. This saffron gave the rice the most gorgeous golden hue, and beautiful floral, earthy notes. It’s very good quality so you only need a pinch to see the colour and flavours in your rice. It's double packed so it should keep really fresh. It's worth taking the time to get your rice perfect, it's just delicious when you do. So make sure you wash it well, and keep an eye on it while on the hob. To make the most of my time in the kitchen I like to make a big pot and then make a jewelled rice for lunch the next day. I just add some roasted chickpeas, any veg I have in the fridge like, usually some cherry tomatoes, spring onions and olives.
We have always been a bit suspect when buying Safr
We have always been a bit suspect when buying Safron, never sure if it is the right stuff. Well you can be sure that when you buy this one, that it is the real deal. The flavours are amazing! We made chicken paella and it was not only beautiful with the rich safron colour, it tasted as good as it looked. We will definitely be buying it again. Well worth the price.
