Potential Health Benefits of Saffron
Saffron spice, in addition to its usual uses in traditional Persian cuisine, has numerous medicinal properties due to the high concentration of Crocin, one of the natural chemical compounds contained in the plant. Crocin contains an array of antioxidants that provide soothing relief from headaches, pain, or even stress. Saffron can improve blood circulation, treating gastrointestinal problems, and helping to maintain healthy skin.
How to Use
With a mortar and pestle, grind saffron threads into a powder form and dissolve in a small amount of hot water to achieve desired color and aroma intensity. When dissolved, add to your food. For better grinding, add a pinch of coarse sugar to the saffron.
You may also steep saffron by placing the desired number of saffron threads in hot water (between 160° F/71° C and 170°F/77°C) for about 15 minutes. The saffron will be ready to use in your dish or drink once the water has turned a deep orange.
