Rumi Saffron

On sunny days in the fall you'll find Rumi's farmers dotting the Afghan fields of purple crocuses. For two weeks they pick from these flowers the crimson stigma which, when dried, turns into the coveted Rumi saffron. Prized for its honey-hay-like flavor and golden orange color, saffron transforms rice into paella, fish soup into bouillabaise and pork into golden ham. Visit our blog to learn more about saffron and discover new recipes.

Named after the 13th-century Persian poet, Jalal al-Din Rumi, Rumi Spice partners with Afghan farmers to bring top-quality, sustainably farmed saffron to customers around the world. Started by a team of US military veterans, Rumi began with a mission to cultivate peace in Afghanistan. Rumi sources saffron from local Afghan farms and employs more than 1900 women in Herat, Afghanistan to hand-harvest the delicate crimson stigmas of the flowers. Committed to empowering Afghan women and bolstering the country’s economy, Rumi reinvests back into agricultural and manufacturing infrastructure. Ingredients: Saffron.

Saffron makes an excellent herbal tea on its own. Simply steep a pinch of saffron threads in a cup of hot water. You can brew this tea two or three times more, adding sugar or honey if desired.

Flavorful and fresh. A great addition to my spice rack.

very very tiny amount and all crushed

the fragrance and color are wonderful,
but there is less than 1/2 tsp in the large bottle
and the saffron stems arrived crushed into small pieces and powder.

The best saffron!

The color and flavor of this saffron is just incredible. I truly love it!

The Very Best

This is worth every last penny! I love the gorgeous color and the flavor is very developed. It doesn’t take very much to add that wonderful and distinct saffron flavor to dishes. I wouldn’t use any other kind, thanks Spice House!
