Spanish saffron is one of the indispensable ingredients for paella, but it is also excellent with fish, meat, casseroles, rice dishes, pasta, sauces, soups (bouillabaisse, for example) and even cakes, cookies and ice cream.
It is best to add saffron to the dish during cooking to take maximum advantage of its aromatic power. When making paella, for example, the saffron threads are crushed and added to the broth about 5 minutes before adding the broth to the rest of the ingredients.
Average rating: 4.5 (see how the average rating is calculated)
If any Italian chef thinks that saffron in Italy is good, it is not as good as from here and there are few details I can underline about it. It is in capsules (one for 2/3 people at the most)
It is strong and taste is as good as ten thousands years ago. Surprised? I have past life memories in Egypt! It is fabulous. In Uk it is impossible to find this saffron even though I tried with Waitrose and some Indian spice shops too. Being Milanese and living in Wales is not easy and that is where Ibergour came in and it did because I was desperate to find Saffron with capital S.
Saffron works with spaghetti and more than ever with risotto rice and seps! I do not even remember if I have found it so good in the old days around Italy.
