NOTE: Our British grown saffron is much stronger than most on sale so advised to use less than normally recommended in recipes.
This was originally on a BBC recipe which I cooked. It takes a little bit of prep but is well worth it. Scrummy food!! Can be made as a nice starter or alternatively served alongside rice or couscous to make a complete meal.
Haven’t cooked these yet but the recipes sound delicious.
In this recipe the saffron is optional but why not add a little opulance to this dish. The saffron flavours are perfect with fish and has been a complimentary partner through time. If you love fish then this dish is a must.
A lovely meat dish with a nice kick of spice. If cooking with saffron you definately need to try a lamb tagine which I reckon is my most favourite dish to cook with our lovely Cheshire Saffron. The saffron works wonderfully well with honeys and dried fruits such as apricots and figs and therefore is a perfect match for a lovely tagine!
Something for the sweet toothed. I havn't personally cooked saffron with desserts but it is something that should work brilliantly. Because of the floral sweet undertones of the saffron it is a fantastic spice to any sweet dish such as ice cream, cake or the SaffronCornish bun.
The previous recipe feeds nicely into this by James Martin Cornish Saffron Cake a true classic and a must for anyone wanting to give saffron a try.
If you like gin you have to try saffron gin, very simple to make and fantastic with tonic and a slice of lime. A little info from flavourseeker.
