We source our saffron direct from a free-trade cooperative in Morocco, and when the annual harvest arrives at the shop we know that spring is right around the corner. 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 signature dishes from around the globe, from paella and bouliabaise to saffron rice and Pahklava.
