Spanish Saffron Threads
Fun fact of the day: a single saffron flower blooms for only one week of the year. In that week, it produces just three stamens, and it takes around 250,000 of these stamens to make a pound of saffron spice. When you imagine the considerable workforce required to pick and prepare these fragile delicacies, it's easy to see why saffron is the most expensive and highly sought after spice in the world. Often valued at several thousand dollars per pound, it's pricier than many truffle, foie gras and even caviar products.
La Dalia's Spanish Saffron Threads, in fact, is one of our most expensive products, if you go by the pound. But when you're talking about 0.03 oz of lightweight saffron threads, it suddenly becomes one of our most affordable items. And fortunately, a little bit of saffron goes a long way. So go ahead and buy saffron online from Gourmet Food Store, and bring this revered and luxurious spice to your home.
As for which dishes to use it in? Saffron is ideal for use in Spanish meals such as paella and risotto, Indian dishes like biryani and saffron chicken, and in many other rice, soup or stew dishes. This particular saffron is grown in La Mancha, a region famed for producing the most exquisite saffron in the world.
