Azafran Mancha Superior Hilos Packed in tin.
Saffron Threads 1oz -28.4 grams.
An Uncommon Thread.
Saffron is expensive for basic reasons of labor and supply.
To create one pound, 75,000 crocus flowers are needed.
They grow best in the semiarid plains of La Mancha
covering the Earth’s floor like a purple blanket. The
delicate crimson stigmas, each about as long as an
eyelash, must be picked by hand before sunrise during a short
window in October (the flower wilts in sunlight).
