Where does saffron come from?

The saffron comes from the saffron crocus, where the pistils are picked and cleaned by hand. The flower is believed to come from the eastern Mediterranean area or western Asia, and is named after the Arabic "zafran" which means "to make yellow". Today, half of all saffron imported comes from Iran.

What is saffron used for?

Thanks to its mild taste, saffron can be used in a variety of dishes and pastries. In addition to the obvious luss buns, you can also bake saffron buns, pancakes or crusts with saffron. In cooking, the spice is perfect in risotto and other rice dishes, fish & seafood or as a flavoring in sauces for e.g. pasta. Flavoring ice cream with saffron is another popular use!
