This amazing combination of sea salt and saffron spice is one that should always be in your kitchen pantry. Saffron is renowned for being the most expensive spice in the world that has a distinctive aroma and a penetrating, slightly bitter taste with a deep, yellow-orange color. It takes at least 70,000 hand-picked flowers to produce one pound of saffron. Saffron is one of the essential ingredients in making paella and bouillabaisse. A little bit of this gourmet sea salt will go a long way in your food recipes.
