Saffron from Italy


Saffron is the most precious and most expensive spice in the world. The Saffron filaments, or threads, are actually the dried stigmas of the saffron flower, "Crocus Sativus Linneaus".
It takes about 210,000 stigmas, picked from about 70,000 flowers, to yield a pound of saffron, making it the world’s most precious spice. Handpicked, the stigmas are dried in sieves over low heat, and then stored immediately. Italy produces on of the best saffron in the world.
