Saffron Rock Candy got its first write-up in the first half of the 9th century.
To speed up crystallization, confectioners soon learned to submerge small twigs in the sugary solution for the crystals to form on.
Rock Candy is used as part of traditional Chinese Medicine, and in Mexico on the Day of the Dead, it’s made into sugar skulls and offered up to dead.
Our Saffron Rock Candy has a potent, sweet smell with hints of floral and honey.
The taste of Saffron Rock Candy is sweet, with the Saffron influence landing as floral and honey-like. The primary taste is balanced sugar-sweet.
