Pure saffron threads, processed following traditional manual processes. Saffron is a spice from the Crocus sativus flower, which is a cousin of the lily. The saffron derives from the stigma and styles — called threads — within the flower itself. Saffron is very expensive due to the difficulty of harvesting it. Farmers must harvest the delicate threads from each flower by hand. They then heat and cure the threads to bring out the flavor of the saffron. This extra labor makes saffron one of the most expensive spices in the world. Use in the kitchen: crumble 7/8 threads of saffron per portion into a cup with a little bit of warm water, leave to rest for ten minutes and add it at the end of cooking to your favorite risottos and dishes. Plus, early evidence suggests that saffron may boost mood, increase libido, and fight oxidative stress. Saffron is generally safe for most people to consume, and it is very simple to add it to the diet.
