Sargol Saffron

Sargol Saffron is the highest quality saffron from Iran. Also known as Persian Saffron, Iranian Safron, or Red Gold; Sargol Saffron can be recognized by the rich scarlet red of its threads. It has incredible fragrance and flavor and powerful coloring strength.

Sargol Saffron Spice by Pilar arrives in a decorative metal tin to protect it from air, light, and moisture, ensuring a long lasting well preserved spice. This is 100% pure saffron, with no partial threads, preservatives, substitutes, or colorants added.

The coloring strength of saffron is measured in units where 190 strength is considered the minimum and Sargol Saffron clocks in at 260. For the strongest flavor, saffron threads should be soaked in a hot liquid for at least 20 minutes but as long as overnight before using. Alternatively, dried saffron threads can be ground immediately prior to using and sprinkled into dishes.

Saffron has a pleasing aroma and taste of fresh grass or hay, with sweet honey notes. However, it has over 150 aroma-yielding compounds so its flavor is incredibly subtle and complex.
