Isfahan Authentic Persian Saffron
Saffron is the golden crimson coloured stigma (thread) that is hand collected from the purple crocus flower. Each flower has only three stigmas making saffron the world’s most expensive spice. Saffron has a distinctive aroma, flavour and colour and once infused the vibrant liquid make it an essential ingredient in many classic seafood, rice and curry dishes like bouillabaisse, paella and biryani. There is no ingredient that can replace saffron in a recipe or dish. Only a small amount is required but it delivers an unmistakable colour, aroma and lingering flavour that are priceless.
