Pure organic, Spanish saffron threads (Crocus sativus
). This exotic spice is the stigmata and styles of the Crocus sativa flower. Its subtle flavor is perhaps somewhat floral, but it’s an incomparable taste that just needs to be experienced.

These tiny threads infuse their potent color and flavor essences to transform every dish they touch. No GMOs. No ETO (considered carcinogenic by the EPA). Not irradiated. Certified Organic by QAI. Kosher Certified by KSA.

Sourcing matters. We source our organic saffron from the Castilla de la Mancha region of Spain, where saffron grows best. Saffron plants only flower for 10 days each year. (This is why it’s the world’s most precious spice.) Workers hand-collect the flowers, then the threads are hand-plucked from inside the flowers.
Our sourcing partner shares our values for sustainable agriculture and for helping their community. They’ve set aside an area to create an “herb school” that will give hands-on education to help develop sustainable agriculture. Real relationships with growers, for real spices you can feel good about.Ingredients :

Saffron needs heat to release its flavor essence. Steep in hot water or broth before adding to dishes. This pre-soaking also allows for the vibrant color to disperse.Suggested Uses :
Crumble a pinch into stews, risotto, pælla, pilafs or pasta dishes. Enhance blander grains like rice, and cauliflower rice. Use in recipes with light meats, fish and vegetables. Infuse light desserts like custards and sponge cakes.
