In my opinion, yes. Saffron is the same way as gold: it is cheap, but it doesn’t go to waste.
The reason is simple: the word ‘saffron’ is an Arabic word. The word has become much more popular in the West and it has become a way to express the exoticness of the spice. However, the actual colour is not very important. The most important part is the colour of the saffron, the colour of the petals and the aroma. In our case, its a deep red and it has an intoxicating smell. But it would take a huge crop to produce this saffron in quantity. The amount of the most common spice of India is around 8 to 5 kg per year. So, to produce this huge quantity we have to look at huge amounts of land.
The Indian saffron is grown only for export. There are still no facilities in Spain for the production of saffron, even though the production of saffron is well known to the industry.
Saffron is a very good thing for the environment, and the more saffron produced there are the greater the amount produced can be. Saffron is made from the seeds of the white bellflower (Brassica oleracea). While the bellflower produces a good amount of oil, the bellflower seed is not as pure and as green as the saffron. This means that when the sun comes out it is a bit darker. It is thus that the oil is released, and the aroma is much stronger than in bellflower seed. This is what makes it so great for perfumery. It is also considered as an essential ingredient in the perfumes of Morocco. Its value is quite high, and the production for export has been increasing.
Which way to find saffron in Spain?
Although most of the saffron comes in Spain, the best thing to find in Spain are the smaller varieties. It is hard for people to find any variety that is more than 10 kg. I have been to many places in the world and have never come across a 10 kg saffron in Spain. In a few places, they even do not use any of saffron at all.
The best place to find saffron is in Morocco, the world’s largest producer. Morocco is home to the saffron variety known as saffron du Monde. It
