Saffron Threads

Superior Saffron!

This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.

SKU N/A Category


Saffron is a remarkable spice that has been used by many cultures for over 3500 years as a flavor in food, as a medicinal and as a tea. It is also a coveted natural dye. Saffron comes from the October blooming crocus. The three stigmas in each flower are the saffron threads. The highest quality stigmas are a deep red. When used in food, beverages and dyes, the color is a light-to-vivid yellow and the unique flavor is impossible to reproduce. The stigmas are added to hot (not boiling) water to release their flavor. Stored in its container in a cool, dark place, saffron will maintain flavor and integrity for several years.

    I was given a small bottle of Rain’s Choice in a gift basket and I have been hooked ever since. The flavor makes all of my baking so much better! I will never use grocery store vanilla again!
