What Is Spanish Saffron?

One of the most prized spices in the world, Spanish Saffron is a rare yet wonderful ingredient used in a variety of cooking applications. The saffron spice is from the crocus flower, which is known for its bright purple leaves.

Each thread you see in our jars is hand picked and cared for. There is no other way to harvest this spice than by picking thread by thread, flower by flower. We import ours from Spain to offer the highest quality Saffron on our marketplace.

How Saffron Can Be Used?

One of the most popular applications of Saffron is in traditional Spanish Paella. The Saffron provides the paella an earthy yet floral flavor overall.

It also gives the rice its signature golden color, making the dish standout. Paella without saffron is simply not the same and some even refuse to eat it without the signature spice being added.
