I got this, the selection of spices is awesome ! And the saffron is of very good quality, since it is very very light a gram is actually a good quantity - anyone that has not tried it should. It has a delicate floral taste so avoid overpowering it with, for example, curry.

How does this place compare with Penzey's?

Spanish saffron is not the best - Penzey's carries (on and off) Kashmiri Mogra saffron that is AWESOME...

Oops - another thing - saffron is the PISTILS (male part) of a kind of crocus. Think of the yellow strings inside the crocuses we are familiar with...

Oh brilliant. My guess is that this is not super high-grade saffron, but regardless, it's at least $5/gram...not bad, not bad!

I add this to hamburgers. Your friends will never guess what's in it. Also if you've ever wondered why Saffron is so expensive, because it is hand picked.

Saffron fun fact: The spice is made from the stigma portion of the saffron flower. The stigma is essentially the female reproductive organ of the plant. Kinda. Close enough.
