Saffron is one of the spices most appreciated for its flavor, aroma and color. This wonderful seasoning is obtained from the stigmas of the flower of the saffron rose, Crocus Sativus, a bulbous plant of the Iridacae family.

Historically it has been used as a medicinal plant. It was brought to Europe by travelers who had discovered its flavor in Asia Minor; It was very produced in Persia, Kashmir and in Macedonia. At the same time it was introduced by the Arabs in the peninsula. Today Iran is the first producer, followed by Spain, Morocco, India and Greece. Saffron blooms at dawn and must be collected instantly, as it quickly withers and its stigmas lose their flavor and aroma. Only a few stigmas of each flower are used, so it makes it so expensive.
