Australian Saffron 100mg
Saffron is a delicious aromatic spice coming from the Crocus sativus flower (also called “saffron crocus”). Native to South West Asia, Saffron has for decades now been the worlds most expensive spice by weight, and is most commonly used in European, Northern African and Asian cuisines.
In the Kitchen:
Characteristic of the spice is its stunning crimson colour and bittersweet flavour making it perfect for hearty savoury dishes such as paella and Spanish Frittata, though it will compliment any rice dish and is also used to make a simple tasty risotto in parts of Southern Italy. To this day, Sicilian arancini (rice balls) are still made from this saffron risotto.
Saffron is also delicious in sweet recipes such as the well known Persian Love Cake or Love cookies.
Interesting facts about Saffron:
The name Saffron comes from the Arabic word ‘zafaran’ meaning yellow and it is also the official colour of Indian Buddhist robes.
The best quality saffron has a deep red colour and honey like flavour.
