Saffron is considered to be one of the worlds most expensive spices! The individual stigmas of the flower are pulled by hand then left to dry, resulting in threads of Saffron. It is used widely for flavor as well as food coloring. Just a few threads will go a long way! Try Saffron in paella, bread or on fish. Our Saffron is sold in a small jar and is $15 for half of a gram.
