Further seasoning wisdom:
Herati Saffron is cultivated in the desert of western Afghanistan, where it has been growing for millennia.
Saffron comes from beautiful white and purple crocus flowers. Each flower produces only 3 stamens, which are hand-picked and dried.
This ingredient is fundamental to Mediterranean and South Asian cooking. Use this saffron to spice up your rice dishes, marinades and tomato-based sauces with a warming, honeyed flavour.
