These are whole saffron threads, aka the tip of the stamen of the crocus flower. These saffron threads are precious and potent. Each individual tiny thread brings a waterfall of flavor.
This Zafferano dell'Aquila DOP is totally pure. It has a completely unique and inimitable flavor and aroma - with rich notes of dried fruit and flowers, and a hint of smokiness.
The perfect micro-climate for Saffron
In Navelli, saffron has its ideal micro-climate; DOP Navelli Saffron is harvested and processed entirely by hand by the Altopiano Cooperative of Navelli, a group of fewer than 100 crocus farmers. When the flowers bloom in October, they are harvested before dawn while the bulbs are closed, so as not to lose any of the stamenâs powder. Each day after picking, the threads are separated by hand and immediately dried over a low-burning fire of neutral wood, like almond or oak, that wonât alter the flavor.
A Natural Antioxidant
Saffron comes from the tip of the stamen of the Crocus Sativus, and saffron from LâAquila, in the region of Abruzzo, is arguably the most famous and prized variety. Thanks to its high level of antioxidants and essential minerals, saffron is believed to have a number of medical uses as well, as a natural antidepressant and even as an aphrodisiac. Roughly 250,000 crocus flowers are required to produce one kilo of saffron threads,
A versatile spice
This is an extraordinary product that truly deserves to be called the Red Gold of Navelli. Soak the threads for a few hours before cooking, and use them to add rich flavor and vibrant gold color to tagliatelle with vegetables, gnocchi, couscous, paella, roasted meat and fish, and bouillabaisse. LâAquila saffron is the key ingredient in risotto milanese, a simple dish flavored with saffron and Parmigiano Reggiano. It is extremely versatile and is also widely used in desserts like orange pound cake or Persian sweet rice pudding.
