Details

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.

Ingredients

Saffron threads

How to Use

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.
