Directions for Use: To extract the true flavour, aroma and colour of the saffron, soak the saffron threads for a minimum of 50 minutes in a hot liquid like water, milk, broth etc. Soak overnight and store the liquid in the refrigerator for optimum results. Use this liquid to add flavour to your dishes or for your face packs. Pre-soaking allows the flavour and the colour to disperse evenly into the dish, drink or the pack.Note: Pure saffron does not lose its own colour or shape after releasing its flavor into a liquid. It takes at least fifteen minutes for the liquid to change its colour.Pure saffron can be used for up to a year of harvesting. Lion Saffron only provides saffron from the current crop year.
