Saffron or Kesar is the name given to the three red dried stigmas attached to a yellow style, part of the flower of Crocus Sativus Linneaus. Saffron is also referred to as “Red Gold” and is considered as a precious spice, used to make recipes extra-special. Saffron is mainly added to recipes to enhance them during special occasions. It is also used extensively in milk, tea, coffee and other beverages. Saffron is a highly valued gift and when presented to an elder is considered a sign of respect. At Hills Gold, we understand the nature of saffron and take extra precautions to ensure that the saffron supplied by us is 100% genuine and guaranteed pure.
