Saffron/Crocus Sativus

Saffron/Crocus Sativus
Saffron is the dried stigma (tiny thread-like strands) 
from a small, purple crocus. It is the world’s most
expensive spice.                           
That’s because each flower provides only three stigmas,
which are picked and dried by hand, and it takes tens of
 thousands of individual strands to produce one ounce
 of saffron. Saffron is the most expensive spice all around 
the world and is in huge demand because of its health and
 beauty benefits.
