Kashmiri saffron is the most difficult saffron to obtain in the world. Blue Lily Organics Kashmiri Saffron is hand-picked in small farming villages of Kashmir in the pristine Himalayan foothills. Saffron is the stamens of the Crocus sativus or more commonly known as Saffron Crocus. A high-maintenance flower that only blooms for one week a year, produces three stamens which are painstakingly picked by hand, and have to be dried with the most delicate of hands. The aroma of the highly desired saffron is described as a concentrated sweet honey smell. Blue Lily Organics Kashmiri Saffron has a thicker head and longer stigmas than the commonly available Iranian or Spanish Saffron. Therefore, our saffron has a more deep maroon color and an intense flavor. The complexity of Kashmiri saffron is experienced differently by everyone. But many describe the flavor to be a faint honey taste with a semi-sweet bitter hint. Other than using saffron for culinary purposes, its known health benefits based on scientific research include, aiding in cell growth management and helping in sugar metabolism and enhancing feeling of well-being. Saffron is an excellent replacement for synthetic food coloring eg: instead of FD and C yellow no 5: a synthetic food coloring agent that is a very common allergy trigger, Saffron’s glorious yellow could be an acceptable hypoallergenic choice. A word of caution: Refrain from using wooden utensils when cooking with saffron as they will absorb the color and aroma of saffron. Saffron can stain clothes.CERTIFIED ORGANIC QUALITY – 100% pure, USDA Certified Organic Non-GMO, Kashmiri Saffron. No toxins, additives.
