saffraan

Did you know that Saffron is extracted from the autumn crocus, crocus sativus. The harvest of saffron, the stamens of the crocus, is done by hand. So why is it the most expensive spice in the world? Saffron is used for the beautiful ocher color, but certainly for the light delicate taste, also a bit bitter.

Do you know that saffron is also grown in Belgium? www.belgischesaffraan.be
