Description 

Pure Saffron - 1 gram

Saffron has been well known for hundreds, if not thousands of years, in Europe and America for its romantic aroma, lovely flavor, and coloring capabilities. Spanish saffron generally does not come in all red threads and you should expect to see some yellow with your saffron.

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.

Chicken Tajine with Olives and Preserved Lemons
Tajine (or tagine) vies with couscous as Morocco's national dish. Tajine is both the name for a vast number of stew-like dishes and the earthenware utensil in which they are cooked. Fish, chicken, lamb or other meats are simmered with an assortment of vegetables, fruits, olives, lemons, herbs and spices to produce richly fragrant, tart, spicy and sweet flavors. Outside of Morocco, traditional tajine pots are hard to find, but we've found that an ordinary covered pot or casserole will work just fine.

Cauliflower Risotto with Saffron
Risotto, the comfort food that can be elevated to gourmet standard with the addition of special ingredients! The naturally creamy texture of a risotto is the result of slow, patient cooking - adding the liquid incrementally and allowing the rice to absorb it slowly. The result is a wonderful texture and the kind of flavor that develops only with time. This risotto is flavored and colored with saffron, the mysterious, pungent and beautiful spice that is so highly prized by chefs.
