A fragrant spice that can be used in paella, bouillabaisse, risotto, tomato cream soups, couscous, and with seafood. It adds a delicate tart flavor, a brilliant yellow color, and a characteristic aroma. A little bit goes a long way! About 75,000 flowers are needed to produce one pound of saffron, which is why it is the world’s most expensive spice. Product of Italy.
