.I used the saffron for my home-made mayonnaise.Love it.Like it.Will buy it again..Although the spices from My Spice Sage are a little bit pricy,but good quality compare to all the spices I can find in Asian Supermarket.,I try my best not to buy spices and things come from China.,so My Spice Sage is definitely my store.
Is the King of spices? I love Saffron, and the price is surely good! I use it mostly to make Saffron Panna Cotta. I do not get to enjoy it too often because Saffron is pretty expensive even at the My Spice Sage prices, and the cholesterol in the dish has to be unhealthy for me...But, fortunately, everything in moderation..
I purchased this thinking that I'd get about 10 threads since Saffron is the rarest of spices, and I got way more than I expected and it's FRESH! So fresh that I used too much the first time. Saffron smells like fresh fields after a lighting storm, and a bit floral without being sweet. I'm very happy with mine.
Seeing as this item was missing from my order (that came 10 days late) I have no idea what it tastes like. It was on my invoice but it wasn't in the package.... so, once again, I guess I can go f*** myself.
Everything arrived quickly (even with the Christmas package crunch); top quality product and the prices are outstanding. I was buying turmeric in 1 oz. bottles at the store and using it quickly, so I bought the larger bulk size at a great savings.
First time on the site. Pleased with the amount of one spice. But for those of us who do not deal in metric grams and such... a non metric measurement ( 1/4 tsp, 1/2 tsp, 3 threads etc) would have been helpful,especially when dealing with saffron. I would have altered the amt of the other spice to get more of the saffron . It is a gift so I don't yet know how he will like it, but I am hopeful he will be pleased and plan to use your site again if he is. Thank you.
Each time I order spices at My Spice Sage, I know the quality I will get, it is always the top of the line, and it is so reasonably priced, and it comes with FREE SHIPPING too, you never can go wrong ordering from this organization.
The saffron was flavorful and robust! So much better than the little dried out strands from the market! And with free shipping, I can order when I make my regular order for other items. Thank you My Spice Sage!
The best deal ever! I love this spice it is superior to most spices in its cataglory. It elavates your cooking to a whole new level. I'm glad I had the opportunity to receive this spice during the promotional period.
I look forward to purchasing this spice into the future!!!!!
My lab ordered this saffron to do a Modified Russell-Movat Pentachrome stain looking for and highlighting collagen and mucins a mound other things and we have gotten excellent results every time.
I did not purchase saffron, it was a gift with my purchase of New Zealand Sea Salt.
The gift of saffron was a very nice gift by the way. Only a pinch is needed in dishes and the gift was a generous amount.
While this is a tad bit expensive you can't find it anywhere else and it has such a great flavor compared to what you could buy in the local store. We loved it in the rice dish we made. Would order again. Wished I had enough to order when they offered the free sample!
I have certainly found my favorite source for ALL of my spices. The spices were vacuum packed and the freshest I have ever purchased. They were equivalent to purchasing spices from a local market overseas. The swift delivery was greatly appreciated as well!
I fell in love with paella whilst living in Spain. I've tried to make it without saffron, but it is just not the same! To me, saffron is worth the price. The flavor is deliciously hay-like/earthy and just slightly bitter. The aroma is one-of-a-kind and the distinctive yellow color saffron produces cannot be found anywhere else!
