Azafran is ‘Saffron’ in Spanish from our great supplier Azafranes manchegos. Here you can get the best D.O. certified “Spanish Gold”
Considered the best saffron in the world for its unique characteristics, it has a high coloring power, intense, strong and exotic aroma with a slight bitter taste. It is grown only in the region of Castilla La Mancha (Spain). An irreplaceable spice in many Spanish recipes. Made from the dried stigma of crocus flowers – approximately 150,000 flowers are needed for one kilogram of dried saffron. This is equivalent to 2,000 square metres of field area per kilogram of harvest.
Fortunately you only need a little to get Saffron’s distinct flavour and colour.
