Saffron Threads Top Grade

23.00

Our Spanish saffron threads are Category I which means this is the top grade available. Saffron is the most expensive spice in the world mainly because of the painstaking labor and time that is needed to remove the stigmas from each crocus flower and the volume of flowers needed for 1 kilo (about 85,000 flowers). Extra care has been taken to remove most of the yellow styles leaving deep red stigmas where the flavor and aroma is concentrated. Our saffron threads flavor and color intensity are rated ISO 190+. Ingredients: saffron threads. Net weight: 1 Gram in a glass jar. Comes in a muslin gift bag.

Everyday cooking: Usually only a pinch is needed 6 or 7 threads. This "red gold" spice goes a long way so you don't need very much.

Quick tips:
-Add to paella valenciana. Find the recipe here.
-Use for risotto milanesa or saffron risotto
-Also ideal for bouillabaise
-Make a luxurious cup of saffron tea: Add 4 threads in a cup with a little warm water, let soak for 10 min. Then pour boiling water over it and add a little honey to taste.
