The family is involved in all the various operations, which take place in different periods, the planting of the bulbs is carried out in August, while the flowers are harvested in November. These are all operations that require commitment and attention, so that 'the final product is of excellent quality'.
The most 'delicate operations are the touching, that is' the separation of the flowers from the stigmas which are the red filaments which once dried take the name of Saffron, we pay particular attention to this operation, in fact the stigmas are red only in the part that comes out of the glass, while the internal part is white, the white represents the impurity of the product making it poor.
The other operation is roasting or drying, this is perhaps the most delicate phase, the temperature must never exceed 40-45 degrees centigrade and the residence time in the oven does not have a precise rule therefore it requires continuous control. to obtain the right drying which then guarantees the best yield at the moment of use.
Our saffron is sold only in stigmas, this is to guarantee the consumer that the product is 100% pure, in addition to the fact that the milling weakens the product and the characteristics are damaged.
