Cornish Marigold Flowers


Perfect for infusions or in place of saffron in cooking.

Grown, hand-picked and dried at Trenow Fields by St Michael’s Mount in Cornwall, our marigold flowers make a deliciously nutty alternative to saffron in cooking or a delicate and soothing infusion.

These flowers have been grown, picked, dried and packed on the St Michael's ley line, which links Trenow Fields with Hodmedod's Bean Store in Suffolk.

  • Cooking instructions

    Substitute marigold petals for saffron in risotto, baking or other dishes. A good pinch of marigold petals can replace a dozen or so good quality saffron strands.

    Steep 1 teaspoon (approx. 1g) marigold flowers in a cup of boiling water for 5 to 15 minutes for a delicately sweet and nutty herbal tea.
