 The Saffron




Native in Middle Orient, the bulb with precious violet flowers was introduced for the first time in Abruzzo in 1300 by a monk, Domenico Santucci di Navelli.

 



Saffron flowersÂ’ cultivation is still manual and the picking is made the morning before the flowersÂ’ opening. To obtain a kilogram of saffron are necessary about 200.000 flowers, but are sufficient few grams of pistils to flavour dishes, spirits, perfumes and tinctures.
