Saffron from la Mancha. This saffron is guaranteed by the designation of origin Azafran de La Mancha. The best saffron of the world.
The guaranteeing body of origin from La Mancha recommends that saffron should be packed in threads, never ground in order to ensure that it has not been mixed with other poorer quality saffron. This way it is possible to preserve its rich aroma, flavour, and colour (converting a "paella" into a festival of colour).
To fully enjoy the qualities of this product it is recommended to grind a few threads in a mortar, and then dilute them in stock. Ideally the saffron should be added just before the dish is fully cooked. (Saffron is famous for its use in rice dishes, however it can also be used in meat, fish and egg dishes)
To preserve saffron, should be stored in airtight container, protected from sunlight and fluorescent light.
Saffron is considered to be the king of the spices. It is obtained from the saffron flower, and more precisely from the three red stigmas. These stigmas have to be hand-picked and toasted almost inmediately, a process wich is unique and characteristic of La Mancha area. This peculiarity, together with soil and weather conditions allows saffron from La Mancha to be considered the best in the world.
