This is a cheats way to make Saffron Ice Cream - it's delicious too!
Can even be eaten straight from the container.........if you can't wait.
I had soup for lunch at a local eatery a few months ago and decided to recreate it at home; with the addition of Eladnelle Saffron. Glad I did, it's delicious and warming in this cold winter weather. Pair it with a home made bread roll straight from the oven, include lashings of butter and it's a meal fit for a King or Queen!
I discovered this recipe on the "Yellow Thyme" site.
I made it for the June birthdays of myself and two other friends. It was deceptively simple to make and absolutely delicious.

Being outside today makes me feel like our poor Weeping Cherry tree. We had some rain a couple of weeks ago and started to see the green showing through in our very yellow landscape. Water is such a valuable resource we aren't currently watering the garden (apart from vege garden), as we haven't had rain for a while. That's become a fact of life, when your drinking water is supplied by a rain water tank. Hopefully after these hot days we will get a good lot of rain.
Was surprised when I picked this last season.

"Research out of Australia and Italy indicates that Age Related Macular Degeneration patients given a daily dose of 20 mg of saffron per day reported partial restoration of vision. Professor of Neurology, Jonathan Stone, of Sydney University, gave 25 patients suffering from macular degeneration 20 mg of Saffron for 3 months, and then tested their maculas and retinas for neuron electrical conductivity. 23 of the 25 patients showed significant improvement, as well as reporting that they could see much better."

Another great day yesterday at Farm Gate Market, sun was shining it was a lovely Tassie day. Had some interesting/informative chats with customers, as they purchased our Saffron. We even had our first return customer 😍 She enjoyed using her first jar of Eladnelle Farm Saffron, so she came back to purchase our 1.5 gram - 'Absolutely Devoted to Saffron' jar. We were chuffed!
Saffron is a powerful spice high in antioxidants.
It has been linked to health benefits, such
as improved mood, libido, and sexual function,
as well as reduced PMS symptoms and enhanced weight loss.
Best of all, it’s easy to add to your diet.
Try adding saffron into your favourite dishes to take advantage of its potential health benefits.
When you want to get the best out of your Eladnelle Farm Saffron please make sure you soak it for the recommended 24-hours, so you can extract as much flavour, colour and aroma as possible. Look at this photo of our Saffron after 10 minutes, then 24 hours of soaking in a few mls of tepid water.
Weather has cooled down significantly at
Eladnelle Farm, so the need for some comfort food
was in order.
What better than this satisfying and

Woke this morning to thick smoke all around us, all from distant fires - currently we are safe. Our valley view was difficult to make out, quite eerie with the smell of smoke heavy in the air. Thankfully by lunchtime it had cleared in our vicinity, but still lurks in the distance. We wanted to thank the men and women currently fighting fires, in what has so far been a terrible fire season for Tasmania. We also have NSW and Kiwi firefighters helping to beat these fires, thank you so much to all fighting to protect us.
Left early yesterday (Sunday) so as to be on time at Farm Gate Market. Had to stop for a few seconds to take a photo of the beautiful sunrise. Sometimes it feels like we live in the clouds.
Many thanks to @ottolenghi for his delicious recipe, which I made last night “Tah Chin” which is an Iranian Rice Cake with an chicken and spinach filling – with of course Eladnelle Farm Saffron as part of the recipe. I made the side dishes of ‘Courgette (Zucchini) and Walnut dip’, plus ‘Smashed cucumber salad with sumac onion and radishes’ which added to the whole experience as well. Link below:
Preparations begin for dinner tomorrow night, 150 mg 'Always Prepared Cooks' size; I took the photo just after water was added, so it will soak for 24-hours to release all the flavour, aroma and colour. What will I cook? Well its a Yotam Ottolenghi recipe, so stay tuned for details tomorrow night.
The fight to extinguish the fire near us continues. This is the site about 12 kms from Eladnelle Farm, (just our side of the township of Glenora), where the fire fighters are refuelling the helicopters used to drop fire retardant on the fire in the nearby National Park.
The fire field has now burnt out 20,000+ hectares over the past few weeks. Thank goodness for the efforts of Tasmanian Fire Services, Volunteers, Police and Ambulance - Emergency Services in general.
Jen & Lee own and operate Eladnelle Farm. They produce and sell high-quality Tasmanian Saffron.
