Why we love it

Rumi Spice saffron packs big flavor in just a small pinch. 1 gram is enough for 74 dishes of paella, and you'll only need 8-12 threads when cooking rice or risotto. It's that potent. Warm, nuanced, and a little sweet, use it to add deep flavor and bright colour to your dishes.

How it does good

Connecting Afghan farmers to the global market

Over 80% of the population in Afghanistan depends on the rural agricultural economy. With this in mind, Rumi strives to build demand for Afghan spices and create a global supply chain. The success of the spice industry brings jobs to farmers and the women who harvest and process the spices. By empowering Afghan farmers and building out the country's agricultural infrastructure, Rumi directly impacts Afghanistan's economic development.

    Rumi works directly with Afghan farmers and tests all their products to make sure they're free of pesticides.

    Rumi's glass jars and metal lids are recyclable, and their cork tops are compostable.
  • supporting key causes

How to use it

Make a creamy, silky, saffron-scented risotto alla Milanese. If you're feeling adventurous, fold in a little cream to make the risotto extra creamy.

When you're done...

The glass jar is curbside recyclable, and the cork is home or industrially compostable. The plastic tamper seal is recyclable through TerraCycle by following our special instructions.

These are general guidelines for broadly-recyclable materials. Check with your local recycler to confirm what they take.
