Info

Freshly picked saffron crocus flowers in Consuegra, La Mancha, Spain. Saffron has been the world's most expensive spice by weight for decades. The flower has three stigmas, which are the distal ends of the plant's carpels. These are separated from the petals by hand and dried to make saffron spice.
