Saffron threads are the three orange stigma at the center of a flower on the purple crocus plant. Since each thread must be hand-picked, saffron is the most expensive spice per ounce. One or two strands, carefully steeped can flavor an entire pot of rice with a dry floral aroma and add a rich yellow shade.
To make saffron rice, use 1 thread per 2 cups of rice dry.
Saffron might help with blood circulation and aid in digestion.

Unless otherwise indicated, products are sold by weight and not by volume. Some products may appear "less full" due to a variety of factors such as the density of the spice, contents settling during shipment, etc.
Our inner safety seals are pressure sealed and it is normal when twisting off the cap that the seal may come off, come loose, and/or tear - so long as none of the contents spill out, the product is safe to consume.
