Description
 
HIGH QUALITY PERSIAN SAFFRON,
The sandy soil of Persian High Alborz Mountains is the ideal location for growing saffron-yielding crocus. At harvest time, the beautiful orange-yellow filaments of the crocus flower are carefully extracted by hand, resulting in saffron with a lingering perfume and a slightly bitter flavor. Saffron, not unlike countless herbs, contains carotenoids, which can help enhance everything from eye health to skin disorder. The compounds include picrocrocin and safranal. It is the crocin that provides saffron its golden hue. It also contains anti-inflammatory compounds.

PAIRING SUGGESTIONS:
This excellent Persian Saffron is especially delicious with roasted lamb, steamed mussels or in homemade foie gras. It's also extraordinary when mixed with citrus juice (lemon and orange) and drizzled over a salad of pears and apples on fresh lettuce. From appetizers, entries to gelato and basmati rice saffron could be used almost in any dishes as flavor enhancer. Brew it in a same way you brew tea in hot water, cover and allow 15 minutes for it to release its aroma and colors.
