Freshly harvested, sundried saffron is one of the most expensive spices in the world. Two gram of saffron takes up to 300 flowers to produce. Each flower is hand picked by a family farm in Herat, Afghanistan and sealed here in Ottawa, Canada soon after harvest to lock in all the flavours. Any dish only needs a few threads of saffron to infuse all the umami flavours in your cooking. 

For the best flavours and longevity saffron needs to be stored in a humidity controlled environment sealed tightly. This is why we store our saffron in cork sealed glass jars, the cork provides an air tight seal over time and maintains the ideal humidity conditions within the jar. Letting you comfortably store saffron for up to 1 year while maintaining the same flavours as freshly harvested saffron threads.

Identical to the 1.0 gram saffron, this option provides twice the quantity.
