Spanish Saffron is possibly the world's most expensive spice. It is highly valued for the delicate flavor & rich golden color it adds to recipes. Saffron is the key spice in such ethnic dishes as Spanish Paella, French Bouillabaisse and Latin Arroz Con Pollo.
Spanish Saffron is such a valuable culinary spice because of the unique, labor-intensive cultivation and harvesting methods involved with obtaining it. It is actually the stigma of a small purple crocus flower, which blooms for a limited time once a year. The stigma must then be hand picked before it is ready for use. It's said to take well over 10,000 stigmas to make just one ounce of Saffron!
Before using Saffron in any culinary recipe, itís best to soak the threads in hot water or a liquid base that is acidic or contains alcohol.
