Rumi Spice Pure Saffron from Afghanistan
I recently interviewed Kimberly Jung who, after completing a tour of duty in Afghanistan, founded Rumi Spice, a company that grows, collects, and exports saffron giving hundreds of local women well-paying jobs. It turns out that a good deal of saffron sold around the world is either old or made from dyed corn silk - Rumi Spice sells the real thing. Here at Milk Street we support Kimberly and the notion of helping the women of Afghanistan earn their own money directly for the first time in their lives. The International Taste & Quality Institute has rated Afghan saffron Number One three years running.
