The finest saffron available. The Kashmiri saffron stamen are long and deeply coloured, giving far better value than the equivalent weight of poor quality saffron. With its sweet, rich, honey, grassy, hay-like flavour and luminous yellow-orange colour, there is really something unearthly about Saffron.

The finest saffron available. The Kashmiri saffron stamen are long and deeply coloured, giving far better value than the equivalent weight of poor quality saffron. With its sweet, rich, honey, grassy, hay-like flavour and luminous yellow-orange colour, there is really something unearthly about Saffron.

USES: Soak the saffron threads in a splash of warm water for at least 30 minutes, crushing the strands of saffron slightly to allow the full colour and flavour to leach out, then add this water including the soaked saffron threads to dishes such as seafood or vegetable soups or stews. Adding raw saffron to a boiling liquid will not result in the same full-bodied flavour and colour.

I prodotti sono di altissima qualità e, anche se i tempi di consegna variano in modo drammatico da una volta all'altra e sono spesso imprevedibili (quindi li eviterei se fossi alle strette coi tempi o volessi fare un regalo ad altri), non ho mai avuto problemi. L'unica cosa che continua a non convincermi è il sito Web da cui si selezionano i prodotti: la navigazione non è molto intuitiva e la suddivisione delle categorie e dei prodotti disponibili risulta alquanto caotica. A volte la ricerca per parole chiave non dà il risultato atteso e devo trivellare i vari menu a mano per trovare quello che cerco. Trovo un po' frustrante i cambiamenti continui nella linea di prodotti (per esempio, mi era piaciuto molto un mix di spezie per grill e insalate che poi non è più stato disponibile) e non sempre mi soddisfano i pacchetti proposti, preferirei comporli personalmente, scegliendo tra vari tipi di piatti e non dover optare per una serie intera di piatti vegetariani piuttosto che di curry. Più flessibilità nella composizione dei menu sarebbe apprezzata. Per il resto, non ho che complimenti e mi ritengo una cliente molto soddisfatta ! Grazie, Alessandra

I have been using the Spicery since it was a one man operation many years ago and have never had anything less than first class service. Their products are excellent and the delivery is very fast.

I have bought from them twice and will continue to do so. I love the quality of their spices and the efficient and speedy delivery. I don't buy spice kits because I am a vegan.
