The Botany of an Original Salt and a Spice Called Red Gold


Saffron, deriving its name from the Persian "zapharan," meaning "stigmas," is a spice derived from the 3 stigmas, or pistils, contained within the Crocus sativus flower.

Considered the most expensive spice in the world, saffron is a rare product due to its extremely laborious harvesting process and very low yield. It takes 150,000 crocus flowers to produce 1 kg of saffron.

Its harvest requires patience and skill. During its flowering, which lasts only 2 or 3 weeks, the crocus is carefully harvested. The ephemeral flowers require the gentle touch of women's hands. Then comes the trimming phase, where women carefully remove the pistils from the flowers, preserving with precise and ancestral gestures the most aromatic part.

Pyramid Salt

Pyramid salt has been harvested since ancient times in the salt lake of Larnaca, Cyprus. In the 12th century, during the reign of Guy de Lusignan, king of Cyprus and Jerusalem, the annual production of 3,000 tons of salt earned Larnaca the name Salina.

In August, when the water has evaporated, a 10 cm thick salt crust remains. In winter, when the water reappears, this place of rare beauty becomes a sanctuary for migratory birds.

This salt gets its name from its shape; it's a little miracle of nature. It's during its crystallization that a particular alchemy gives these crystals a stunning pyramid shape.

Legend Surrounding Cyprus Pyramid Salt

There is a legend concerning the lake of Larnaca. According to it, the lake appeared when Saint Lazarus asked an old woman for food and water. The woman refused to give him what he asked for, saying that her vineyards were dry. Saint Lazarus replied with the phrase "May your vineyards dry up and become a salt lake forever." Thus, the lake of Larnaca appeared and produced this salt of perfect geometry.
