Products

Our gourmet basket contains only products without preservatives, harvested, grown and prepared in Provence.

coffret-gourmet-autour-du-safran.jpg1 bottle of 4 or 20 cl of saffron syrup, composed of water, organic cane sugar and saffron of Provence. This condiment is useful as a culinary aid, of course, but not only. It can be incorporated into an aperitif drink, with champagne for example, or an herbal tea. It will be the little extra that will give some pep to your desserts. Saffron syrup has been a popular product in French gastronomy for a few years.

coffret-gourmet-autour-du-safran.jpg1 jar of 100 or 150 g of honey mustard and saffron of Provence: acacia honey, vinegar and mustard seeds from organic farming. The other ingredients are saffron, salt and water.

coffret-gourmet-autour-du-safran.jpg1 sachet of 200 g of Camargue salt flavored with anise and saffron, prepared in the Bouches du Rhone.

coffret-gourmet-autour-du-safran.jpg1 glass tube containing saffron stigmas of Provence, to infuse for use in cooking (weight: 0.1 - 0.2 - 0.5 or 1 g).

Saffron

Saffron is the pistil of crocus sativus. Its production requires a presence at the time of flower harvest (in autumn) and delicate handling. The flower is indeed picked very quickly after the breakthrough of the pistil but before the opening of the petals, to prevent it from being damaged. From the moment the crocus has opened, the pistil is no longer protected. Each pistil is composed of 3 stigmas.
Crocus cultivation, on the other hand, does not need chemicals because it grows very easily on the calcareous soil of Provence, and is not subject to insects or harmful organisms. Saffron is therefore a natural and safe spice by essence, the only spice from a flower. Also, saffron is good for health.
That's why it often bears the nickname of « red gold from Provence ». It’s often used in our French regional cuisine, especially with fish. Saffron enters in the preparation of the bouillabaisse for example.
