Iranian Saffron, the World’s Best Red Gold
Saffron crocus is one of the most valuable types of historical plants in the world. The cultivation of saffron dates back to 3000 years in Iran. Each purple crocus flower produces three red stigmas, which are hand-picked from the blossom, dried, and permitted to ferment slightly to produce saffron. It takes 170,000 dried stigmas to produce one kilogram pure saffron threads. One part saffron to 150,000 parts water will turn the water a bright yellow and still leave its distinctive flavor. No surprise that the precious crop is called as “botanical gold” as well as “red gold”.
