The world's first smoked saffron! This amazing 2020 crop saffron was grown by Dr Sally Francis of Norfolk Saffron at Burnham Market in Norfolk and smoked through her secret two-step process.
Norfolk Saffron's unique Smoked Saffron imparts a wonderful smoky-saffron flavour to savoury dishes.
This Smoked Saffron is made from Norfolk's Saffron's delicious pure saffron threads using a secret two-step process. First it's exposed to smoke from oak sawdust for an optimised time period in a traditional smokehouse, and second, Norfolk Saffron give it their essential post-smoking treatment.
Smoked saffron combines saffron's wonderful flavour and aroma with the richness of natural smoke. The threads are slightly darker than natural saffron.
Norfolk Saffron's super strength smoked saffron is amazing in sweet and savoury dishes. As a category I saffron, it goes much further than you might expect,. One jar will make 12 portions of saffron risotto.
This saffron was harvested in October / November 2020. It's yet to be graded but last year's crop had a colouring strength of 277.9 (category I), measured under the international ISO 3632 standard. Only the finest saffron samples in the world achieve category I with a colouring strength over 250, indicating high levels of crocin, picrocrocin and safranal, and so high colouring potential and strength of flavour.
Take the required amount of saffron (see below), crumble or grind it and then infuse it in a liquid suitable for your recipe (water, stock or milk) for at least 20 mins, or overnight. This is important to get the maximum colour, flavour and aroma from the saffron. Add the saffron infusion into your recipe.
Saffron quantities for cooking are measured in grams, pinches, or numbers of threads. Assuming you don't have laboratory scales in your kitchen, by far the best way to get accurate results is to count of the number of threads required.
A saffron flower contains three joined threads, but for our advice below, quantities refer to single separated threads. A 0.3g jar of Norfolk Saffron typically contains over 100 threads.
Here are Norfolk Saffron's suggestions for cooking with their saffron*:

Britain's original bean, the fava bean is delicious, nutritious and good for the soil. Our Organic Whole Fava Beans are perfect for spicy Egyptian ful medames, truly British baked beans, stews, curries, salads and more.

|These wonderfully wrinkly peas have a distinctively sweet and grassy flavour. Their especially high levels of resistant starch provide excellent nourishment for our gut flora.|
Wrinkled peas are mostly grown for freezing but if not harvested in time they go to waste. Not these ones!
Whole wrinkled peas are superb in stews and curries, with a distinctively sweet, grassy flavour.
We're still experimenting with ways of cooking these peas ourselves but they can be substituted in recipes for other whole peas, especially whole yellow or blue peas. We look forward to hearing how you've cooked them!
