Description 

 

Saffron has the distinction of being the most precious spice in the world. Saffron possesses a deep, rich flavor and fragrance that is like no other! 
 
Spanish saffron is considered to be the finest in the world. Spain's climate, atmosphere and temperature offers the optimum conditions for growing saffron. Lolita Superior Grade Spanish Saffron is unbeatable in color, aroma and flavor. 
 
Saffron is widely known as an essential ingredient in Latin, Mideastern and Asian cuisines, especially in rice dishes.
 
To use, saffron threads should be broken up and infused in hot liquid to evenly diffuse the rich red color and intense aroma.The main pigment is water soluble, but the inclusion of some alcohol or fat int he extraction liquid will dissolve additional fat-soluble (pigments) carotenoids.
 
Product of Albacete, Castilla de la Mancha, Spain
 
1 oz of genuine saffron threads in a handsome tin box.

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.

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.

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.

Mediterranean Saffron Rice
Saffron has been considered one of the most precious and expensive spices in the world, mainly due to harvesting. Saffron comes from the threadlike stigma of the crocus flower and must be harvested by hand. These threads are deep red and bright orange in color and have the taste of bitter almonds. Saffron is used to flavor dishes, and a very little bit of saffron goes a long way. A pinch of saffron adds an intriguing flavor to an everyday rice dish.
