Where does saffron come from?
With its strong, exotic aroma and bitter taste, saffron is named among the sweet-smelling herbs in the Song of Solomon. A golden-colored water soluble fabric dye was distilled from saffron stigmas in India in ancient times. Shortly after Buddha died ,his priests made saffron the official color for their robes. The dye has been used for royal garments in several cultures.
What does it taste like?
Saffron is extremely subtle and fragrant. The slightly sweet, luxurious taste is totally enigmatic—it’s tricky to describe but instantly recognizable in a dish. As annoying as it is to say, you know it when you taste it.
How to use saffron?
Grind 2 tsp. saffron threads, along with a sugar cube or a pinch of coarse salt, to a powder with a mortar and pestle or a spice mill to draw out the most flavor and color. Then add ¼ cup warm water and let cool. This is the vibrant elixir to use in your paella, buttery saffron rice, and special occasion desserts like saffron-rose water brittle.
How Much Saffron to Use
Most great chefs believe saffron is more about the aroma than the taste and if you can taste the saffron in a dish, you’ve added too much. A good rule of thumb is to use about three strands a person. There are approximately 463 threads (3/8″ to ½” in length) per gram of saffron so 1 gram would yield approximately 150 servings.
Making Saffron Tea
In order to get your money’s worth with saffron you should understand how to make “saffron tea” instead of just adding saffron threads to your recipe. Think of it exactly as you would when making any tea — the longer your saffron steeps, the stronger its aroma, color and flavor will be. Saffron’s full flavor can be released effectively in hot liquid such as broth, milk, water or at room temperature with citrus juice, orange blossom water, rosewater, vodka, white wine or white vinegar.
The amount of liquid used is not critical and if your recipe doesn’t call for one of the aforementioned liquids then as little as one or two teaspoons of hot water will be fine. Add the saffron threads either whole or break them up by rubbing them together with your fingers and add to the liquid for at least 20 minutes before you add this “saffron tea” to your recipe. Don’t remove the saffron threads from the liquid as they will continue to release saffron’s signature aroma, color and flavor for up to 24 hours.
We’ve found that leftovers with saffron are even more flavorful because of this continued infusing process. You’ll also find that by making your own “saffron tea” and by using our highest quality Category I saffron that just a little goes a long way.
