Great price, heat!

Good deal...but 0.1g Saffron is BOGOF at 49p in Lidl...I know cos i just bought 2 yesterday.

0.1 lg would be bargain

you mean 0.1KG?

you wish..it is saffron unfortunately only 1 gramm

100g?? I doubt it, that would be rather more than £1..

krihoum

you mean 0.1KG?

I think not...

It's like £7500 for 0.1kg haha, most expensive herb on the planet.

it's hand picked from flowers, its not easily sourced

heat! waste of packing for such a little bit :-(

this is cheap saffron

It won't be the best no, probably Spanish or Turkish.

You can really enhance the flavour by toasting it; fold a pinch into an envelope of foil, seal it tight and drop it into a dry pan for 5-10 seconds a side. Makes a difference.

I'll be making saffron buns later, heat added and a nice dollop of butter mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

do any of you watch food unwrapped on channel 4? if saffron seems to good to be true thats because its fake - rife even in the supermarkets. saffron is the stem of a flower that is extremely rare thats why it is expensive!

That's complete rubbish it's not rare at all they farm it for flips sake...

Saffron is the style & stigma of the Saffron Crocus (Crocus sativus) you can buy 90 bulbs for £20 in the autumn crocus.co.uk/pla…46/

as a chef i can say if that is 0.1g that is hidiously expencive the going rate for good qulity safron is £3.27 per gram

What is saffron good for health wise
Or is it just for taste
