Size: 1 Gram

Our Indian Kashmiri Kesar Saffron (Crocus Sativus) is 100% pure Category 1, Select Grade quality, and is free of any dyes. It is one of our top selling products and is superior to most other saffron on the market today. Our saffron is grown in the Kashmir region of Northern India. 

Our pure Indian Kashmir Saffron comes from the dried stigmas of the flowers Crocus Sativus Linnaeus, more popularly known as the Saffron Rose. It has a wonderful aroma, lovely flavor, and just a small amount is needed to add deep color and flavor to any dish.

Saffron Rose - Sonoran Spice

Each thread is handpicked from the crocus flower the and each flower only yields 3 threads. Just to produce one gram of our saffron it takes over 400 threads. You'll notice how soft and fresh our saffron is compared to other brands as we harvest the saffron by hand in very small batches at a time. This harvesting is done at dawn as soon as the flower opens to protect it from the sun, ensuring the threads are not brittle to the touch. Each thread has a deep red color and the threads are much longer than most of the other saffron you'll find in the USA today.

Harvesting Saffron - Sonoran Spice

Our Indian Kashmiri Saffron comes in a small spice jar with a twist-off cap. Store our saffron in a cool, dry place to ensure maximum shelf life. Do not refrigerate and keep away from direct sunlight.

It always ships in 2 business days or less.

There are just some things in this world that shouldn't be scrimped on, and saffron is one of those items. I have bought saffron elsewhere before and could not understand what all the hoopla over it was about. Well, it turns out I just wasn't ordering top quality saffron from a reliable source. Sonoran Spice's Pure Indian Kashmiri Saffron has a bright, clean taste that enhances food, and accomplishes this using an almost unbelievably tiny amount. Previously, I had tried another company's inferior product that went from "doesn't do a thing for the meal; should I add a tad more?" to "now it just tastes like dirt" ! You won't get that undesirable result with Sonoran Spice's saffron. It's pure quality, pure saffron, purely delicious. And my order got here in good time, too, in spite of the pandemic slowing so many things down. I will definitely be ordering from this company again.

I use it with black Licorice root tea and honey for flavoring and health benefits, yum delicious.
