Saffron is highly flavorful and aromatic, with a spicy, pungent and slightly bitter taste. The threads are used in many rice dishes as well as with vegetables, meats, seafood, poultry and in baked goods. They add a sharp, almost medicinal flavor and a beautiful yellow-orange color to the dish.

How to use saffron to draw out the maximum flavor, color, and aroma from a pinch of saffron?

A “pinch” is about 20 medium saffron threads. There are two methods for brewing saffron. Both work really well. Any leftover saffron liquid will keep in a tightly covered jar in the fridge for more than a week. Saffron liquid is deep red but will turn yellow when mixed with food.

Method 1) Brewing in hot water: The best way to extract flavor from saffron is to soak the threads in hot (not boiling) liquid for about 30 minutes before using. Then add the liquid to the dish, usually towards the end of cooking. If you like, you can strain the threads out before you add the liquid, but it’s a fiddly job, and the threads look good in any case.

Method 2) Brewing with ice: Put a pinch of saffron in a small bowl or cup. Add an ice cube (crushed ice is best). Leave to infuse for about ten minutes or until the ice has completely melted. The gradual melting of the ice will bring out the color and aroma of saffron very nicely. Use the liquid as required.

How can I keep fresh Saffron?

Store saffron in an airtight container in a cool, dark place for up to six months for maximum flavor. Saffron, like other herbs and spices, is sensitive to light, so wrap the packet in foil to protect it further. Saffron will not spoil, but it will lose increasingly more and more of its flavor with age.

Can Saffron expire?

Saffron eventually expires — after one to four years — depending on whether it’s whole or ground. Like many spices, saffron eventually loses its flavor and potency and can be too old to use in cooking. To keep saffron fresh longer, store it in an airtight container away from heat, moisture, and sunlight.

Is Saffron good for your health?

Saffron is used for asthma, cough, whooping cough, and to loosen phlegm. It is also used for sleep problems (insomnia), cancer, intestinal gas (flatulence), depression, Alzheimer’s disease, fright, shock, spitting up blood (hemoptysis), pain, heartburn, and dry skin.
