What is Saffron?

Saffron is a spice that is derived from the Crocus Sativus L. flower, also known as the "saffron crocus." What makes this spice so special and incredibly valuable is the fact that each saffron crocus only produces three small threads. Each one of these threads must be handpicked due to its delicate nature. It takes roughly 75,000 flowers to produce just a single pound of Saffron. 

Saffron is a healing spice which is used in top restaurants around the world, by experimental cooks, and also those who enjoy it saffron for its medicinal health benefits.
