The world’s most expensive spice, but a little goes a long way. The cost comes from the labour involved. Saffron is the stigma of the saffron crocus (Crocus sativus). Pickers are looking for three tiny fragile stigmas inside each flower. They pluck them with tweezers. Spanish Saffron is the most consistent and flavoursome, this one is sourced from the home of Spanish saffron, Castilla-La Mancha.

It takes 210000 stigmas to compile a single dried pound of saffron.
