What is saffron? Harvested from the crocus, saffron threads are the dried stigmas of the flower. Saffron is prized for its unique flavor, wonderful aroma, and distinct color. Many delicious dishes throughout the world feature saffron as the key ingredient.

What’s the difference between Saffron Powder and Threads? Pure Spanish Saffron Powder by OliveNation is made from ground saffron threads. There’s an advantage to using Saffron Powder. While saffron threads require steeping to release their flavor, powder can be used immediately.

How do you use Saffron Powder: When cooking with Saffron Powder, season with only a pinch of the spice. Too much saffron can overpower a dish.

Why is saffron so expensive? Some compare saffron to gold and for good reason. The harvesting of saffron is very labor intensive. Each crocus flower produces only three stigmas. It takes thousands of them to produce one ounce of saffron. Just imagine that each one of those stigma threads has to be hand picked! Though Saffron Powder is one of the more expensive spices, a little goes a long way. Steer clear of discounted saffron as it could be an imposter or lesser quality saffron.
