Product Description

Size: 1 gram

Saffron threads, the stigmas of an autumn crocus, add both fragrance and a characteristic golden color to paella, curries, rice, seaafood dishes, desserts, and breads. They impart a subtle, earthy flavor heavenly to the taste, but almost impossible to describe. Saffron was introduced into Spain by the Arabs in the eleventh century The best saffron still grows there today. For even coloring, soak a few threads of saffron in a little hot water or warm milk, and then add both saffron and liquid to your dish. Use INDIA TREE Saffron to flavor Valencia, Arborio and Basmati rices; paella and risotto; poached pears; coconut saffron ice cream, and bouillabaisse.

Saffron lasts a long time and you only need a small amount to flavor most recipes. While it seems expensive, it goes a long way and is not expensive in the long term. This glass bottle of saffron is perfect and will last for what seems like years. I have tried a few varieties over the years and this saffron seems to last a long time and is always flavorful.

I use Kashmir and Spanish saffron in many of my dishes, but for bread, I prefer the Spanish Saffron threads. Many recipes call for saffron powder, but using the threads in this recipe is much more effective and the flavor seeps out into the warmed milk. You can also use saffron threads in cream soups to give them a more delicious almost buttery flavor.

The purple saffron crocuses must be picked at dawn and then the three red threads must be stripped from each flower. It takes about one hour to strip 1,000 crocus flowers. Saffron can cost thousands of dollars per pound and must be harvested from about 70,000 flowers.

Here is my favorite recipe for using these honey-like, intoxicating saffron threads.

Saffron Rolls

3/4 c. fat-free milk, warmed to 110 degrees

8 saffron threads

1 pkg. rapid-rise active dry yeast

1/4 c. clover honey

2 lg. eggs

2 T. canola oil

1 1/4 tsp. salt

4 c. all-purpose flour

Oil for bowl

This dough may be made in a bread machine or by hand. Bread machine method: After heating the milk, steep saffron for 10 minutes. Strain milk into the bread machine pan along with yeast, honey, eggs, oil, salt and flour. Set on sweet, dough, large cycle. When complete form rolls.

Hand method: After heating milk, steep the saffron for 10 minutes. Strain milk into a large bowl.

Fine quality, but expensive. You can find the same amount for 1/3 price at places like Trader Joe's.

No matter how much of the product I use, There is never anything other than the saffron color. I've never been been able to get any saffron flavor out of this, even when using 4times the recommended amount. I will not be buying this again.
