Taste That Makes A Difference
You can feel good about the superior flavor of Frontier seasonings. We source our spices from growers committed to quality, sustainability and ethical trade.
The world's most expensive spice, saffron threads are painstakingly hand-picked. For a pungent, delicate flavor and rich yellow color, crumble saffron into breads, soups, seafood sauces and paellas. When adding to dishes with little cooking liquid, steep the threads in hot water before using.
Steep threads for 20 minutes in something acidic such as vinegar or lemon juice, or something alcoholic like wine, in order to extract the full flavor, or finely powder the thread by pounding in a mortar and pestle. 1/2 tsp. of threads makes 1/8 tsp. of powder. 1/2 tsp. of threads is generally enough saffron for most dishes.
Saffron imparts a lovely color, strong, sweet aroma, and distinct, bittersweet taste. It's often used in Mediterranean, Arabian, and Indian cooking. You'll find it in French bouillabaisse, Spanish paella, Italian risotto, and Indian pilafs. In England it's combined with dried fruit in yeast cake. Saffron is added to nonalcoholic beverages and is an ingredient in vermouth and bitters. Try it in cheese, egg and fish dishes, marinades, sauces, vinegars and salad dressings, and with grains.

What other natural product gives your food that full golden delicate flavor...the queen of herbs
was looking for saffron spice for a long time. don't be fooled by the look of the big bottle - the spice itself is in a tiny packet rolled inside.
