How do I use saffron?
The drying of Saffron threads has already been done before purchase which makes cooking with Saffron generally very easy. As this product does not include the saffron crocus sativus, there is no need for boiling hot water when cooking.
All you need are 10 to 20 deep red threads and you can easily use Saffron for:
- Black Tea
- Saffron Rice Paella
- White wine and Saffron Sauce
- Persian Rice
- Home-cooked Saffron Oil
- General Cooking for some all-red Saffron spice flavour
How long can you keep saffron threads?
When stored correctly, dry, crushed or pure saffron strands can last up to 6 months. Store your Saffron in an airtight container in a cool dark place and you will retain maximum flavour. Saffron will not go off but it will lose potency with age. If you’re worried about the longevity of your saffron, reach out to our customer service team for advice.
