Spanish saffron is considered to be the king of the spices. It is obtained from the saffron flower, and more precisely from the three red stigmas. These stigmas have to be hand picked and toasted almost immediately, a process which is unique and characteristic of the La Mancha area. This peculiarity, together with the soil and weather conditions allows saffron from La Mancha to be considered the best in the world.
Beware of cheaper, lower quality saffron imported from outside Spain. Spanish La Mancha carries a designation of origin stamp for its saffron, do not accept imitations!
The unique aromatic and fragant flavour of our Spanish saffron makes it a key ingredient is classic paella recipes but its use is not only reserved for this classic Spanish dish. Use saffron in fish soups, stews, dressings, when making fresh pasta or even in desserts.
