Saffron is held in high regard among spice connoisseurs because of its distinctive, highly unique flavor, but the amount of labor required to produce Saffron makes it so expensive that it is sometimes worth more than gold. Saffron threads are the dried stigmas of the saffron flower, and because each flower only contains three stigmas, it takes more than 75,000 flowers to produce a single pound of Saffron Threads, all of which must be harvested by hand.
