Saffron Threads are the dried stigmas of the saffron crocus flower. It is the most expensive spice in the world because each crocus produces only three stigmas, which are laboriously hand harvested during only three weeks of the year. Delicate flavor compliments light meats, fish and poultry. Use to season pilaf, Italian risotto and Mexican rice. Gives bouillabaisse its heady aroma and golden color. Saffron loses flavor after long periods of cooking, so it is best added to a dish near the end of preparation.
