Ingredients: saffron (category I)

In addition to adding a brilliant golden color, saffron brings depth and dimension to sweet and savory dishes; from ice cream, milkshakes, and flans, to rice dishes, soups, and stews.

It is a staple ingredient in paella and bouillabaisse, and shines bright with chicken and fish, and in rice dishes like saffron rice, risotto, and Indian biryani.

Saffron should be used sparingly, up to 3 strands per serving, and stored in air-tight jar and out of direct light.
