This Moroccan Saffron is the best we have ever seen. Saffron is the stamen of the crocus flower and is the most expensive spice in the world. 70,000 of these flowers must be hand picked to produce one pound. Thankfully it has a powerful flavor and about twenty five cents worth will flavor a dish and also provide a deep yellow-orange color. Experiment with it in sauces and soups - it's also wonderful in mayonaise. Saffron is the essential ingredient in both paella and bouillabaisse.
