Product Details

One-quarter (0.25g) of a gram, whole threads.100% Certified Kosher.

Saffron threads, come from a plant known as saffron crocus or autumn crocus, Cultivated for over 3,500 years, it's believed to have originated in the Mediterranean, with evidence of its use in Greece, Minoan Crete, and ancient Egypt. Prized for its saffron spice, saffron crocus holds a place of importance in many cultures, even being depicted in Minoan frescoes.

Medicinally, saffron crocus has a long history of uses as well. References to its medicinal properties can be found in ancient Greek and Roman texts. Modern research suggests Crocus sativus may have antioxidant, antidepressant, and anti-inflammatory properties. However, we here at DragonMarsh feel the threads are too precious to be used for medical use.

Culinary uses are where saffron crocus truly shines. The orange-red stigmas of the flower ( only 2 per flower ) are carefully harvested and dried to produce the world's most expensive spice, saffron. Saffron adds a warm, honey-like flavor and a vibrant yellow hue to dishes around the world. From Spanish paella to Iranian saffron rice, this spice has been a treasured ingredient for millennia.

Saffron crocus also has a place in magical traditions. Across cultures, saffron has been used in rituals for love, prosperity, and healing.
