Product: Pure Spanish Saffron Threads Gathering of Saffron Select 1/2 oz. tin
Price: View !!!
Description: A must for traditional Risotto Milanese. Saffron is unquestionably the most expensive spice in the world. That probably explains why some restaurant chefs lock it in their safes! But don't worrymost recipes call for only a pinch and a little goes a long way. Our pure spanish saffron is the freshest saffron available. Every step of the cultivation is done by hand. Dried stigmas of the crocus flower must be hand-picked from the flower. It takes over five thousand stigmas to produce one ounce! Unlike some saffron, ours is made from the full stems and not ground-up pieces that can easily be adulterated. The price of saffron is dependent on its coloring power (graded categories I to IV with I being the strongest) Gathering of Saffron - Select (category I) Gathering of Saffron - Sierra (category II)
