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.

Saffron Risotto with Grilled Shrimp
Wonderfully rich and creamy, this classic dish is only enhanced with saffron. Grilling the shrimp instead of boiling it and adding at the end, which is the usual way, adds a new smoky dimension to an already irresistible risotto.
