Product Description

We have secured a special deal on this saffron from Spain and are passing the savings on to you. Saffron (azafran) from Spain is the best quality available. This particular batch is grown in La Mancha, but packed in a modern facility in Alicante to keep the price down. The quality of this saffron is only surpassed by our own 'La Mancha Saffron' or our 'Certified Origin La Mancha Saffron.' Hand harvested from the crocus sativus flower, this is the absolutely indispensable ingredient in Spanish cooking. The Saffron from La Mancha accounts for a small portion of the world's production, but the quality is unmistakably superior to that grown in Turkey, Iran, and India. These 100% red threads (stigma) contain no waste or white plant parts (styles) that reduce the quality or add to cost; only the best of the best in our products! Tips for use of Saffron: - Pimenton or Turmeric can mimic the color of saffron, but the wonderful flavor is unique to this prized spice. - We recommend 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of Saffron threads be added to a recipe that serves 6-8 people. - Saffron releases it's flavor when heated, thus it is important to add the saffron before the dish is done cooking. - You may add the saffron directly to the dish, or infuse it in warm liquid to release the flavor. Feel free to experiment by making a saffron "tea" by using water, broth, or wine to add to your favorite recipe. - Some traditional recipes recommend gently toasting the saffron in a skillet (being careful not to burn) and then grinding prior to adding to the dish. - Powdered saffron has half the volume of thread saffron; 1/2 teaspoon of threads is about 1/4 teaspoon powder.

Saffron is unusually difficult to find in my local market so I've been trying out several different varieties available here on Amazon...nothing beats the flavor of Saffron!

I had high hopes for this one since it is packaged in an acrylic box (unlike Frontier brands which is a competitively priced slightly more expensive version that uses pouches that smell like a pool liner - argh!). The price was suspiciously low so I thought I'd give it a try with the hope of finding an affordable alternative.

Unfortunately this simply doesn't measure up even to that of the Frontier brand. While the packaging is STRONGLY preferred...this simply wasn't fresh enough. The flavor was a bit more mild and it required more than double the quantity I've been using for a simple rice dish with the other brand.

Notice the expiration date...2017. As of this writing in early 2010 it is good to know the use by date is not near. On the other hand, a seven year window leaves something to be desired.

Bottom Line - Preferred packaging but less fresh than "other" brand sold here on Amazon. However, other brand uses less desirable liner that lingers. I'm still searching for a good alternative and will report when I find one.

Given the rather exceptional rating to this product, I had expected them to be all pure red saffron stigmas. However, on closer examination of the product, the style/stigma of the saffron plant (yellow in color) seems to have been included. Basically, the yellow stigma has NO CULINARY VALUE, that means NO AROMA, FLAVOR or COLOR. The yellow stigma left attached to the red saffron adds upto 50% DEAD weight to the saffron, and you pay for it.

Conclusion: Look elsewhere!

From the looks of the package this saffron is exposed to light. The reason some views say that this saffron is weak is because some of the important chemicals involved in the aroma and flavor of saffron break down relatively fast in the presence of light. As such you'll notice high quality brands use opaque packaging, i would avoid this one if you're looking for quality.

Received the 3-pack of saffron, but this time all three boxes were inside a sealed plastic bag instead of each box being wrapped separately. I thought the separately wrapped acrylic boxes was a good idea for shelf life. I also noticed a lot of yellow strands this time, but I don't know what that means. I expected the consistent dark red strands I got before.

Maybe my expectations were set too high, but I was disappointed in the potency of this saffron.
Yes, less expensive than buying it in the grocery stores, but for the money I will look for another.

While this saffron is not as potent as some others that I have tried before, it still adds a wonderful flavor and beautiful color. My paellas turn out quiet well. For a low-cost saffron, I would choose no other brand.

I really like the way this saffron is packaged. It makes it easy to store in the pantry and easy to use. The saffron isn't crushed, but I also don't have this half empty container with a few threads sitting in it, either. The saffron smells strong and tastes good. I have no complaints about this product.

I haven't received yet but I can tell you it is cheaper than anywhere else and I like this brand. All yellow rice in stores even health food stores has some form of MSG which gives me migraines so I started buying saffron to make my own.
