Saffron

We have our saffron bulbs coming up again. Saffron is a crocus bulb that grows and flowers in the fall. One of the most expensive of spices because of all the labor involved in processing it. The 3 or 4  red stamens of each flower are picked by hand and then carefully dried very quickly in the oven. We try to leave 10% moisture in the stamens and then we package them. We ask $5 for 2 recipes worth, that is about 30 threads or stamens. Delicious!  Ready in a few weeks, keep an eye on our blog.
