Saffron is the name for the threads (stigmas) from the Crocus Sativus flower. There are only 3 saffron stigmas for each individual flower,so it takes over 80,000 blossoms to make a single pound of this saffron.
Saffron is known as the "Spice of the Gods" and has been cultivated for thousands of years. Known around the world for it's rarity, this spice has consistently been one of the most expensive materials known to man and has been traded between cultures for centuries. When used to make rice, the spice imparts a delicious flavor and a rich yellow color that is popular in Persian and other cuisines, like Italian Paella and Cajun Bouillabaisse. This pack contains 1 full ounce of pure Category 1 Saffron harvested in Afghanistan.
