Long tube containing 2 grams of Miasa’s premium saffron threads
Saffron is a unique spice that’s derived from the crocus flower, and offers a singular and much sought-after aromatic experience that has made it an ingredient in cuisines and perfumes for millennia. Besides its delightful aroma, saffron also functions as a dye, and lends its vibrant colour to any dish to which it is added.
The “saffron threads” themselves are actually the stiles and stigmas of the flower, which need to be harvested by hand at exactly the right time. This, along with its incredible flavour and culinary versatility have given it the title “red gold”, the most valuable spice in the world. We encourage you to give it a try, and find out what the fuss is all about!
Saffron threads are used as an additive in a wide variety of dishes, and can transform savoury as well as sweet dishes with its unique aroma. Whether you’re an experienced chef, or a home cook looking to diversify your spice cabinet, saffron has a lot to offer!
