    Description of Pure La Mancha Saffron threads La Rosera 1.5 gr Box

    Brand
    La Rosera
    Producer
    Bealar, S.L.
    Origin
    Motilla de Palancar, Cuenca
    Production
    Saffron filaments come from the flower of a plant called Crocus sativus, or saffron. It blooms for about 20 days, and during that time the growers harvest the flowers by hand from before dawn until noon. The petals are removed from each flower to extract the three stigmas (the filaments), which will be heat-dried to reduce the moisture content to the 5-6% necessary for optimum preservation. The filaments are so tiny that over 100,000 flowers are needed for a kilo of saffron, which is why it is such a costly spice.

    The yearly saffron production of the La Mancha Designation of Origin is only about 500 kg. The product is distinguished by its sturdy, flexible filaments, which are bright red and very aromatic. The red stigmas stand out clearly from the flower and the style is short.

    Ingredients
    Pure saffron threads, without preservatives or food colouring.
    Properties
    Saffron is one of the few spices that give color, flavor and aroma to foods, and the best saffron contains the largest amount of the compounds that impart these characteristics. These compounds are picrocrocin (flavor), crocin (color) and safranal (aroma).
    Storage
    Best kept in a cool dark place.
    Expiry
    It will keep for a minimum of 1 year after delivery.
    Recommended Use
    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.
