It takes an immense amount of painstaking manual labor to produce saffron. How much? Over 3,000 saffron crocus flowers are hand-picked for just one ounce. So yeah, it's expensive. That's why it's acquired the moniker, "red gold". Luckily, a little goes a long way.

These are one gram jars of saffron threads, imported from Spain. Guaranteed 100% saffron according to International Organization for Standardization (ISO) guidelines. During the monda or esbrinar portion of harvesting the stigma of the flower, a deep red thread, is removed, toasted, and dried to conserve the saffron's distinct aroma and flavor.
