As it has to be collected by hand, it is considered the most costly spice in the world. Kashmiri Saffron is produced in the Saffron fields of Pampore region, Kashmir, India is known to be the best variety of Saffron in the world for its silky, smooth, and fine stigmas that impart a distinct aroma, flavour and colour to your dishes. Kashmiri Saffron is produced at a very large scale for commercial purposes in Kashmir Valley, India. How To Use Saffron? Saffron not only imparts a distinct flavor and aroma but also makes your dish look more presentable. Saffron can be used in thread or ground form, depending on the recipe. If you are using saffron to garnish your dish and wish to create a visual impression, you can use threads. On the other hand, if you want the saffron to blend with your dish such that it is not obvious to the eye, you should go for its powdered form. The cooking tips given below will enable you to reap the maximum benefits from this magical spice: • You can prepare powdered saffron instead of buying it from a supplier. You can do this by grinding the saffron threads with a mortar and pestle. If you find it difficult to grind the threads due to the moisture content, add a pinch of sugar to them and then grind. This will make grinding easier without affecting your recipe. • You can make liquid saffron by adding 3 to 5 teaspoons of warm or boiling water to powdered saffron and allow it to infuse for 5 to 10 minutes. Store it in a jar for a few weeks and use when needed. Liquid saffron can also be prepared with milk, vinegar, or wine instead of water. It is usually added to other ingredients towards the end of cooking to draw out the color and disperse the flavor throughout the dish. • You can also make saffron milk. You need 1 cup of boiled milk, a pinch of saffron, and 2 teaspoons of sugar (if needed). Add the sugar and saffron to boiled milk. This saffron milk tea can be a good addition to your regular routine. Benefits : • Protection Against Cold. Saffron is an effective tonic to treat cold and fever • Promotes Memory Retention • Relieves Menstrual Cramps • Helps Treat Insomnia • Good For Heart Storing Saffron : You can store saffron in an airtight container in a cool and dark place. Do not store it in the refrigerator as the spice may develop fungus due to the moist environment all around. Though saffron does not expire or spoil, it can lose its flavor and potency over time (usually in 10-15 years).
