Each package contains an airtight container of 1/2 gram of pure saffron threads from Tuscany.
10-12 servings, ready to use.
Saffron is the world's most expensive spice. This is because it is hand-picked from the crocus flower, each blossom of which yields only 3 threads.
It is used in many different dishes, from pasta to fish and sauces to desserts. Only a tiny amount of it is enough to add a pungent and earthy flavor.
Add saffron at the end of the cooking process to preserve its aroma and flavor. Before adding the saffron threads to any dish, they should be steeped in a small amount of warm water.
