So, what is saffron?

Saffron is a prized spice that is derived from the crocus flower, also known as Crocus sativus. It is known for its distinctive flavor, aroma, and vibrant orange-red color. Saffron is widely used in a variety of dishes, from paella to risotto, and is especially popular in Middle Eastern, Indian, and Mediterranean cuisine. Due to its intense flavor and high cost, saffron is often used sparingly and is considered a luxury ingredient. It is also known for its potential health benefits, as it contains compounds that may have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
