Slow Food acclaimed Aragonese saffron: a Bastion product since 2004 - the highest international recognition granted by Slow Food.
 
The saffron from Jiloca region (Aragon) is totally natural, organic and is handmade and handpacked so you can enjoy its delicious taste and scent. It is recommended to use on rice, fish, shellfish, meats, soups and also desserts.
 
Created in 1986, Slow Food is promoted as an alternative to fast food. It strives to preserve traditional and regional cuisine and encourages farming of plants, seds and livestock characteristic of the local ecosystem.  Slow Food envisions a world in which all people can access and enjoy food that is good for them, good for those who grow it and good for the planet.
 
Considered one of the most exotic spices, used for centuries in the Middle East, saffron is known for its distinctive colour and smell. Saffron itself is the stigma of the Crocus Sativus flower and can only be harvested once per year by hand on the same morning the flowers open up. So as not to break the stigma. It can only be grown in certain climates and once picked needs to be dried carefully.
 
Due to the nature of the product and potential for fraud, an International Standards Organisation (ISO) code 3632 has been developed to categorise the quality of saffron, based on flavour, aroma and colour.
 
How To Use: Saffron is used in all types of cuisine, from Middle Eastern, to Indian to European (in particular Paella).

Depending on the flavour or colour you want for your dish, usually you would only use a few threads at a time, so one bottle should last for a few meals.
