Iran is known for producing some of the highest-quality saffron in the world.
Saffron (also known as Zafran, which is where our name comes from!) comes in the form of a trumpet-shaped thread obtained from the flower of the crocus plant and can be used as both a dye and as a spice.
It has a warm, hay-like fragrance, a sweet, honey-like flavor with earthy undertones and somewhat bitter back notes. Its luxurious taste and color along with its appealing aroma made it a subtle condiment that has numerous usages. The hay-like fragrance in saffron is due to a chemical compound called safranal, whereas picron is responsible for its golden-yellow hue.

Saffron is very easy to add to your diet. Soak it overnight or in warm water for 30 min and have the saffron-infused water. Add it to sweet cuisines like payasam, halwa, and a variety of other sweet dishes to give it a great flavor. It is even added to biryanis for that authentic taste!
