Saffron is a spice derived for the flower of the Crocus sativus or autumn crocus .This autumn flowering perennial bulb bears up to four flowers each containing three vivid red crimson stigmas.To produce a single pound of saffron it can take up to 75,000 blossoms.The reasons saffron is so expensive is due to the amount of labor involved in both growing, harvesting and processing of the plant.All saffron cultivation is done by hand and to grow saffron it take a unique climate of friable, loose, low-density, well-watered, and well-drained clay-calcareous soils with high organic content.
Soak the saffron threads The most effective way to draw the flavor and color out of saffron is to submerge them in a hot liquid. In most cases, letting it sit in the liquid for 10 to 20 minutes is enough to prepare the saffron but we prefer overnight for depth of flavor
Measure the saffron threadsA general rule for saffron that is always good to know is; Saffron is usually measured in grams, the number of threads, or “pinches.” A “pinch” typically means 20 medium-sized threads of saffron. Use a food scale or count the threads to measure out the saffron. Adding too much saffron can ruin a dish we suggest erroring on the side of too little more can always be added.
Crush the threadsThe quickest way to do that is to break down the threads. Saffron threads are very delicate, so it’s easy to crush them with your hand. Use your thumb and forefinger to gently grind the threads into pieces or use a mortar and pestle to crush the threads as is traditionally done.
