Saffron 0.5G



Origin: Saffron is the world's most expensive spice: a testament not only to the labour required to produce it (it takes 200,000 flowers to make one kilogram of saffron), but also to its unique ability to impart an intense flavour & an intense yellow colour to foods. Saffron's flavour is characterised by a notable bitterness & 'dryness' & a penetrating hay-like aroma. Saffron is typically used in small quantities - a few threads or a pinch - & re-hydrated in a small amount of warm or hot liquid before being added to a dish, in order to extract both flavour & colour
