Different Ways of Using Premium All Red Saffron
To get the very best from your fantastic Mehr Saffron Premium All Red Saffron there are a couple of things to remember.
The first is to never throw whole saffron strands into your cooking, instead always crumble the required number of threads into a small container, or for the best results grind them with a pestle and mortar.
You can make a saffron infusion to add to your cooking very quickly, simply be adding a small amount of pre-heated liquid to the ground saffron, and simply leave for about 20 minutes for the color, aroma and taste to infuse out. What liquid you use will depend on the recipe, water, stock or milk all work, and once infused, you can leave it in the fridge overnight if you wish.

Method of Consuming Saffron: The best method for consuming saffron is drawing it. For providing and drawing saffron, apply a little saffron in a small bowl pestle and then rub it with a little sugar or a lump sugar and then mix a teaspoon of rubbed saffron with a half cup of boiling water and then leave it for a few minutes with the aim of being drawn. After a few minutes, saffron will be more colorful.

So I hit up Amazon Prime, and after reading the reviews, it looks like the Mehr Saffron is the closest in quality to what I usually buy. But I checked out the Mehr webpage before making my Amazon purchase. Truth be told, I should have followed my gut, and taken a hint from the grammatical and spelling errors throughout the website! But I needed delivery the following day, so I pulled the trigger.
The 5 gram bottle of Mehr saffron @ $31.47 (approximately $6.20 per gram) arrived in a beautiful cardboard box lined with satin fabric. Nice presentation, but when I compared both the size of the filaments, the aroma, and the intensity of color, the Mehr product paled in comparison.
Rather than be a total naysayer, I did a side-by-side taste test by soaking each of the saffron in some water. Hands down, the Spanish “coupe” was both more flavorful. I needed to increase the amount of the Mehr product by an additional 1/3 to get the same flavor and color intensity. Bottom line, the Mehr product is OK, but it’s not worth the 5 star reviews.
(FYI, the Costco website is selling a 14 gram jar of Plaza de Saffrons “Coupe” variety for $79.99 ($5.71 per gram) including shipping an handling. Sounds too good to be true. Wish I could see the product, however it’s only available for purchase/delivery online. )
Luckily, a small amount of saffron does the trick in cooking. If you didn't already know this, you make a slurry of the dry pistils of saffron in a warm liquid--one containing an oil is best because like many herbs and spices, the active essential oils are not very water soluble. I usually use few tablespoons of warm milk or cream. But if you aren't using milk, water with a touch of butter or olive oil, heated up but not boiling works very well. Then you can sprinkle this liquid over the top of your rice, or mix it into your dish and get saffron flavor well distributed.
