Grown and hand harvested on the Spanish plains of la Mancha, this premium saffron has larger filaments than saffron from other regions, and its aroma and flavor are more delicate. Rare Spanish saffron prized for its delicate aroma and flavor. Use a few strands to impart a golden hue and inimitable flavor to dishes, especially paella. It takes over 200,000 crocus flowers - each bearing three stigmas that must be separated by hand - to produce just two pounds of the dried saffron filaments. 1 gram (approx. .03 oz.) Made in Spain.
