About Bahraman Saffron Powder Ta-1648
This Saffron powder can be infused or sprinkled on your dishes for the finishing touch. Brings a hint of color and flavors rice, seafood and desserts wondrously. Its rarity and the delicacy of the Bahraman Saffron powder taste make it a fantastic spice.
Saffron, which comes from the Persian "Zapharan," meaning "stigmas," is a spice from 3 stigmas from the Crocus sativus.
Considered the most expensive spice in the world, saffron is rare due to its meager yield and highly tedious harvesting process. Roughly 150,000 crocus flowers are needed to obtain 1kg of saffron.
Harvesting requires patience and dexterity and is carried out very carefully when the crocus blooms, which only lasts 2 to 3 weeks. Local women delicately hand-pick these flowers, which only last a day before wilting. Then comes the intricate process of removing the stigmas from the flowers, keeping intact the most aromatic part of the flower, using an exact and age-old technique.
The red stigma of the mauve-colored crocus has surprising aromas of cedar, pepper and flowers, bringing together warmth, intensity and a delicate sweetness. It leaves gourmets spellbound and is a must-have for any chef searching for a Michelin star.
