There are many ways to grow your own saffron and they range from just making a bit of stuff out of saffron or collecting it from your own plants, to making a concentrated powder and then making small capsules.

How to grow saffron in India
I learned from many people from different parts of India whether you have to use specific soil conditions, how to water properly, you have to make sure that it’s a fertile place for saffron, how to grow flowers, how to grow your own saffron plants.
And so, I began experimenting with my own way of growing saffron in India.
After a couple months of experimenting I had the seeds I needed for a starting saffron plant. I planted seeds in my garden and waited.
I waited a few weeks and then a few months more and then I began my first saffron-growing experiment.
The first year was good, but the second was not as good.
It took some time and some seeds to grow up to the first growth phase.
I kept learning and getting more and more results.
In my very first experiment, I had only seen saffron leaves in my kitchen.
I started seeing more and more and realized that I could grow saffron in my kitchen!
And I did for many many months.
But after my second year of experimenting, I went back to the source (the internet)!
Then I learned the most amazing, helpful recipe from one of my favorite food bloggers and it all came together in one shot!!!
I made a great, easy and tasty, homemade cream sauce that I use to add to anything in my pantry or fridge that needs saffron. I’m going to share the cream sauce recipe with you!
