We source our saffron direct from a free-trade cooperative in Morocco, and it is the best we've 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- a small pinch will flavor a dish and provide a deep yellow-orange color.
Saffron is an essential ingredient in both paella and bouliabaise. Add a pinch to the cooking water for rice and enjoy an easy and delicious saffron rice.
