Or Azafràn Molido in Spanish. Saffron comes from the stigma of the flower Crocus sativus. It takes to harvest several thousands of these flowers and separating each stigma by hand to be able to produce this majesty of a spice, commonly known as "red gold" and the "king of spice".

Only a bit of pinch is needed to majestically enhance the flavor and aroma of sauces, rice, and meat. Worth the price in the long run! A real treasure, with all the aroma and flavor of Spanish cooking, in two formats: threads or ground, so that you can make this exclusive spice an indispensable ingredient in all your cooking. 

A small amount of this superior ground saffron will give your dishes a delicious flavor and color, and it is a key ingredient in the preparation of traditional dishes such as paella, risotto, bouillabaisse, and also in fish dishes, soups, sauces, puddings, pasta, and casseroles.

Compliments fish, poultry, and light meats.
