Premium Grade Saffron Threads
Offering the deepest color and fullest flavor possible, our Premium Grade Saffron Threads impart delicate, luxurious flavor and bright golden color to traditional dishes like paella, risotto, breads and bouillabaisse.
Ready to use. Add to taste. However, for best flavor and color, lightly toast threads in a dry pan to release their essential oils then crush prior to use, either with fingers or mortar and pestle. When adding threads to dishes with very little liquid, soak saffron first in lukewarm water and add at the end of cooking.
Storage & handling
Store in a dry, cool place.
This classic Northern Italian dish, which is traditionally served alongside veal osso buco, is among the best-known uses for both saffron and short-grain, high-starch white rice varieties like Arborio, Carnaroli and Vialone Nano.
