Tips for Buying Saffron

Be careful when buying saffron, because it is sometimes mixed with other spices.  True saffron is expensive and has a deep-orange to brownish-red color.  The redder the strands, the better the quality.

Choose whole saffron threads over powdered saffron because the threads have a better flavor.
