Region: Spain Spice: Saffron
Saffron is called azafran in Spanish and is a spice that has a special place in history, always having been considered very valuable. In fact, at one point it was even used as currency! Saffron is the tiny red stigma in the center of the purple crocus flower. Each bulb produces 2-3 flowers and it has a delicate flavor.
We will look at the botanical and cultural history of Saffron in Spain, and taste the recipes provided in the curriculum packet.
