DESCRIPTIVE QUALITIES: Known as one of the most unique spices on Earth, Spanish Saffron is a flavor-packed, sense-delighting and brightly colored spice used in culinary, cosmetic, and many other industries.
Referred to as ‘azafron’ in Spanish, Saffron is historically one of the most sought-after and expensive spices to grace the Earth. Once used as a currency in ancient Greece , the uses of Saffron have slowly changed into a culinary delight throughout the modern years. Due to its extremely difficult and arduous process of harvesting, saffron is commonly known as the most expensive spice in the world.
The flowers, and the highly sought-after threads within them, must be harvested by hand. This means many hours of manual labor by farmers and their employees. Harvesting 150,000 flowers takes 40 hours of labor to complete and of that 1,000 flowers are needed for every ounce made.
The Saffron spice comes from the Saffron Crocus, more specifically the flower of it and its bright color makes it stand out from other spices. Spain produces some of the highest grade Saffron in the world.
