Saffron


Homegrown saffron is a staple in many households in Le Lot and an important part of the regions culinary tradition. Larger scale production is led by a cooperative group of farmers surrounding the village of Cajarc, whose rich soil bordering the Lot River is well suited to Saffron cultivation. The 48-hour picking season for saffron blossoms takes place in October.  Cajarc's fall festival during the last week of October offers visitors not only a unique variety of the spice but saffron cheeses, jams and pates. Saffron in Le Lot is approximately EURO 30 a gram.
