Saffron from Spain 1 Gram

Saffron is the golden stigma of the purple fall crocus and is the world’s most expensive spice. The value of this spice is derived from the fact that it is such a labor-intensive crop. Only five to seven pounds of saffron can be produced from each acre of land. The flavor of saffron, however, is very concentrated. One gram of saffron is enough to flavor forty servings of saffron rice or two large batches of paella.Our saffron is Pure Mancha Superior Saffron from Spain and comes in individual boxes sealed as Genuine Spanish Saffron. The adorable, clear boxes are imprinted with “The Gathering of Saffron” and pictures of a woman picking saffron strands by hand and a family gathered for paella.

Recommended with reservations

I purchased the saffron with an eye to giving it away as presents to three women who are dedicated cooks. Although I myself did not try the product, they have reported that although the saffron did product the lovely yellow color in the dish they had prepared, the flavor was not entirely “right”. This is a more affordable version of the more expensive saffron that can be used in a pinch but if you want the total experience, you will have to splurge for the better quality stuff. However, this saffron is still much better than the coloring agents found on supermarket shelves that merely reproduce the desired yellow tinge to dishes.

Incorrect description

The description states 1 ounce but what I received was 1 gram. I am in the process of getting a refund, no idea how long it will take.
Also, $25 for 1gm of saffron is a ridiculous price!
