Known as “The King of Spices,” each individual thread of this vivid crimson saffron is a stigma, hand-harvested from the heart of a Crocus flower. Our sargol saffron is imported from Iran, and hand-cut and sorted to ensure the finest possible product. “Sargol” literally translates to “top of the flower,” and is the strongest grade available on the market, comprised of red stima tips only. This luxurious yet delicate indulgence carries strong notes of honey and warm hay, and creates a luminous, golden broth. It is ideal for risotto, paella, biryani, or any host of Middle Eastern, European, or Mediterranean dishes.
