Whole Saffron Threads 'La Mancha' 1g by Seasoned Pioneers

Saffron threads have a delicate yet intensely warm, musky flavour with a sweet aroma. Saffron is the most expensive spice in the world, due to its complex harvesting process. The stamen is hand-picked from the Crocus Sativa plant on the fertile La Mancha plateau in Spain. On estimate, it takes 250 000 flowers to make one kilo of threads!

Saffron threads are a luxury in many cultures and saved for very special recipes and occasions. Scandinavian cultures use saffron at Easter for the St Lucia Saffron Buns, while Italy make a delicious creamy risotto ala Milanese. Try using in bouillabaisse (French fish soup), paella, tomato-based sauces and asparagus.

As well as in food, Saffron imparts a golden hue into gin and tonics.

Seasoned Pioneers’ main aim is to help adventurous souls achieve culinary inspiration. We do this by providing premium spices, chillies, herbs and specialist seasonings. We ensure these ingredients have bold, intense flavour so you get more bang for your buck!

These spice mixes are blended, roasted and packaged by hand, in small batches, to guarantee a first-class quality that surpasses anything else on the market.
