100% Organic Certified high grade saffron
ORGANIC INDIA Saffron enhances the flavors of many styles of cuisine, and most culinary experts prefer threads to powder, as the flavor is typically stronger.
Saffron threads can be added directly into food preparations for flavour and color.
Either make a paste using saffron threads in a traditional mortar and pestle, or soak a few saffron threads in a cup of hot water for at least 10-15 minutes, and then add this water to the recipes.
Its best to soak saffron for 8 -10 hours before using: most of the benefits are released by being infused in milk or water.
What makes Saffron the most expensive spice in the world?
Only one species of crocus yields the true saffron: Crocus sativus, the saffron crocus. Each flower has three tiny, thread like stigmas in the center that must be harvested by hand before sunrise, carefully handled and gently dehydrated. About 14,000 threads equals one ounce of saffron!
How do you know if you are buying genuine saffron?
You can test saffron by immersing a thread in warm water or milk.
If the liquid turns yellow immediately, then the saffron is fake.
Pure saffron must steep in either warm water or milk for at least 10 to 15 minutes before its deep reddish-gold colour or a dark yellowish colour permeates in the water or milk and the saffron aroma begins to develop.
