Superior Grade Spanish Saffron

Our Superior Grade Spanish Saffron is grown in La Mancha, Spain. Saffron is expensive because it must be harvested by hand. The threads are the pistils of Crocus sativus, and it takes one acre and 75,000 crocuses to produce one pound of saffron. The flowers bloom only one week each year.

Details

Saffron spice is used in a variety of recipes: chicken soup, rice dishes, and saffron bread are probably the most common. Any good bouillabaisse (fish stew) will also feature saffron, while saffron risotto ala Milanese is a wonderful Italian rice dish made with arborio rice and Italian Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese. Saffron sales are especially high during Easter, as many Slavic and Scandinavian cultures have traditional bread, roll or Easter cake recipes featuring this spice. These recipes often call for almost a whole packet of saffron, which is why they are reserved for only the very special family occasions. Try our Coupe Grade Saffron for an even deeper golden color.
