About This Project

Saffron is a delicate product. To obtain 1 gram of dried saffron, one must manually pull the stigmata and styles off of about 200 crocus flowers. The subtle smell and taste can easily enrich a meat, fish, rice or pasta dish. The ‘Safran du Quercy’ is also used in many other products, such as candy, syrup and ice cream, but also products such as cheese, salt, or confit d’oignons.
