What is the Saffron?
The Sanskrit name for saffron points to the ancient Indian area of saffron production: Kashmirajanman or "product of Kashmir".  Saffron in some modern Indian languages is called kesar (Hindi) and Kisar (Urdu).  the Saffron filaments or threads are actually the dried stigmas of the saffron flower,  "Crocus Sativus Linneaus".  Each flower contains only three stigmas.  These threads must be picked from each flower by hand and more than 75,000 of these flowers are needed to produce just one pound of Saffron filaments making it the world's most precious spice.  But, because of saffron's strong coloring power and intense flavor it can be used sparingly.  Saffron is used both for its bright orange-yellow color and for its strong, intense flavor and aroma.
