Firstly, there is no doubt that saffron is an expensive spice. And more than 90% of this spice is cultivated in Iran. However, it’s a well-known fact Iranian saffron spice is the best!
The Crocus Sativus flower has 3 threads. When buying saffron you look for 3 grades…
- Sargol (tip of the thread)
- Negin (all of the red thread and minimum yellow) and
- Pushal (all of the thread).
