Saffron is the most expensive spice in the world! Why? Saffron threads are actually the stamen of a flower that blooms for only one week per year, which are still harvested by hand. When used properly, a little saffron can go a long way.
Saffron is similar to a dried herb, in the sense that it required heat and hydration to draw out all of its aromatics and color. One of the most common ways of adding saffron to a dish is to first steep it in water, like a tea. After fifteen minutes of steeping, the liquid will grow deep orange in color and is ready to add to a dish at any stage. It compliments almost any type of stew, rice dish, and creamy dessert.
