Saffron - 1 oz.
The golden color and rich perfume that the tiniest bit of saffron imparts to any dish makes it well worth the price. Often used in Scandinavian baked goods like St. Lucia buns, saffron is carefully harvested from crocus flowers, then dried to preserve its color and flavor. Its flavor is warm, with the subtlest hint of spice.
What you get
1 ounce of hand-harvested Spanish Saffron threads.
Care & storage
Will last for years if stored tightly wrapped, cool and dry and out of sunlight.
Test kitchen tips
For uniform color and flavor, saffron should “bloom” in the liquid or fat in a recipe before being added to the remaining ingredients.
