The best quality of saffron stamens available - from the saffron fields of La Mancha, with a Denomination of Origin as proof of their quality. Our La Mancha saffron comes from Antonio Garcia and his family, who have been growing and harvesting La Mancha saffron for over a hundred years. Antonio is one of the founders of the La Mancha saffron authority. The saffron is complete with the numbered D.O. label from ‘Azafran de la Mancha’ the regulator of La Mancha saffron. This numbered label confirms the quality and provenance of the saffron, and that each stamen comes from La Mancha and is only from the first harvest – as this produces the best flavoured saffron. Each stamen is hand picked and it takes a quarter of a million crocus flowers to make 1g of this saffron. Presented in a pretty little glass jar to keep their freshness.
