Flor de Sal d'Es Trenc Safran
The newest spice salt mixture from the Majorcan salt works is Flor de Sal d'Es Trenc Saffron. The saffron used to make this limited edition is produced in Herat, located on the ancient trade routes of the Middle East, in western Afghanistan. The saffron is produced by Talay Sorkh, a social enterprise dedicated to the ethical production of high quality saffron. Talay's network of farmers extends to over 200 farmers, who support an average of 7 household members with a living wage. Saffron is also a very positive alternative for the women's community in this sector, as the production process represents their labour and social integration. The Ethical Fashion Initiative is a programme of the International Trade Centre, a United Nations technical agency, which focuses on creating supply chains and developing market links for food and fashion artisans around the world. In Afghanistan, where our work is supported by the European Union, our mission is to create sustainable livelihoods through trade for more than 2,000 returnees, internally displaced persons, potential IDPs, farmers and marginalised artisans by 2020. As a spice, saffron is an excellent flavour carrier and completes every dish with its fragrant aroma and reddish colour. Saffron is found in a variety of Mediterranean recipes, especially in combination with rice, and is also frequently used in Asia. Our Flor de Sal d'Es Trenc saffron is the ideal finish for fish, seafood and poultry. It refines rice dishes such as paella.
