The worlds most expensive spice, saffron is the stigma from a small purple plant which only produces three stigmas, which are hand-picked and dried carefully. Chefs are wild for this flavorful and colorful spice, heady and supremely aromatic. Use this fiery-yellow beauty for authentic Bouillabaisse, an exquisite Paella, or a sublime risotto. It will add potent flavors and intense color to dishes. Saffron is placed into four categories according to color, flavor, and aroma, with strict international standards. This superb saffron is the most superior grade, Category I. Store in an airtight container in a cool, dark place.
