Saffron is the world’s most seductive spice, from the mountains of Kashmir to the mountains of Fiordland. Steve and Jo Daley of Kiwi Saffron grow this exotic plant commercially in the far south. Connoisseurs of saffron are always surprised to find that it is grown in New Zealand. Kiwi Saffron is of world-class quality due to high UV light levels and stringent processing procedures.
Early April mornings bring floods of purple crocus across the Kiwi Saffron fields. Each flower is carefully handpicked, and the saffron stigmas are removed and processed on the same day to ensure freshness and vitality. Production to packaging all takes place on-site. Fields are tended mostly by hand with lots of hard work – the reward being the esteem in which Kiwi Saffron is held by renowned chefs, health practitioners and international customers.
Delicious in summer paella, risotto, creamy seafood sauces or even saffron gin. Gluten-free and vegan friendly. Kiwi Saffron is available in 0.1g, 0.5g, 1g, 2g and 5g packs, either threads or ground.
