    Suggested uses

  • Delicate flavor complements light meats, fish and poultry

  • Use to season rice dishes such as Spanish paella, rice pilaf, Italian risotto and Mexican yellow rice

  • Combine with white wine, cream, garlic and butter to top pasta, poultry or fish

  • Add a pinch to tomato-based sauces or beef stew for a delicious and exotic twist

  • Use to give bouillabaisse its characteristic heady aroma and golden color

  • Add to baked goods like saffron buns, a traditional element of Swedish Christmas celebrations

  • Many recipes call for a "pinch" of saffron threads, which translates to about 20 medium threads, or slightly less of our Premium Grade Saffron Threads

  • Basic prep

    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.

    Classic Risotto alla Milanese
