Saffron is the world's most expensive spice, so when you choose one, choose wisely. Pi¤a saffron comes from selected farmers in La Mancha region of Spain. It is picked directly from the flower and set to dry. Pi¤a saffron is not adulterated with other parts of the flower, nor is there any addition of colorants.

In short, Pi¤a saffron is of the highest quality, meaning it is very powerful and a ?little goes a long way?. Unlike saffron powder, You cannot just add saffron threads to your dish. The threads need heat to activate their flavor and color. You can lightly toast them on the stove, being especially careful not to burn them, soak them in hot water or soak them in drinking alcohol.
Saffron has its own exclusive taste with a complex flavor. Intense floral notes, with a touch of sweet and slighlty bitter.
