Saffron is known as the most expensive spice in the world, saffron is the dried stamens of the crocus flower. Exclusively picked by hand, one understands why it is so unique at 150,000 flowers picked to make 1 kg.
You'll find saffron in two forms, threads and powder. Saffron threads are the whole stigma from the saffron crocus, while saffron powder has been gently dried and ground.
Saffron Powder: You can add saffron powder directly to a dish without toasting or pre-soaking. Powdered saffron dissolves easily into foods, evenly flavoring the entire dish. Use half the amount of powdered saffron if your recipe calls for saffron threads. While powdered saffron provides the rich gold color associated with paella and other dishes, there will not be any visible threads in your finished dish.
A little real saffron suffices to make an absolute delight of dishes such as curries, paella, cream sauces (especially with prawns or scallops) and even ice creams.
