Saffron El Avión
For many centuries, saffron has been considered as the elixir of life. It's a staple ingredient for many Mediterranean dishes, so you would probably find a jar of these rich red fibre treasures in anyone's spice collection!
Traditionally in Spain, for any celebration, families would gather around a table together and enjoy a delicious home cooked meal that contained saffron, and everyone could appreciate the flavours and aromas of the spice together.
There are many health benefits to eating saffron. It is considered the equivalent of gold in the spice world, due to the fact that 250,000 flowers are needed to obtain one kilogram of saffron, and each one is handpicked!
