This value pack will last a long time even with heavy use, and suits the frequent user or commercial kitchen. It is our best value retail offer—you won’t find another brand of this quality any cheaper in New Zealand. This product is graded “All Red” Grade 1 under ISO 3632 (the International Standard for Saffron Grading) and it contains 100% saffron stigmas. The threads’ colouring and flavour are superb and the spice is more concentrated than its European cousins. All our saffron dries in the sun until it’s brittle—it’s not oven-dried or dehumidified.
Harvest time for saffron is autumn. The flowers often appear before the foliage.
