Perfect for infusions or in place of saffron in cooking.
Grown, hand-picked and dried at Trenow Fields by St Michael’s Mount in Cornwall, our marigold flowers make a deliciously nutty alternative to saffron in cooking or a delicate and soothing infusion.
These flowers have been grown, picked, dried and packed on the St Michael's ley line, which links Trenow Fields with Hodmedod's Bean Store in Suffolk.
Substitute marigold petals for saffron in risotto, baking or other dishes. A good pinch of marigold petals can replace a dozen or so good quality saffron strands.
Steep 1 teaspoon (approx. 1g) marigold flowers in a cup of boiling water for 5 to 15 minutes for a delicately sweet and nutty herbal tea.
