Use of Saffron Stigmas


Recommended doses

Utilizzo degli stimmi

Pure saffron stigmas must be kept in a cool, dark place.

The dose used is typically 4-5 pistils per person.
For a saffron risotto for 4 people (300 g of rice) use 0.2 g of saffron stigmas, equal to about one abundant teaspoon.




Utilizzo degli stimmiBefore using the saffron (depending on the recipe) you must put it in hot broth or cooking water for few minutes

It should not be cooked at the beginning of the recipe, but it has to be used as late as possible, so it will release their distinctive.



Utilizzo degli stimmiFor the best performance let them soften in a little hot water for at least 20 minutes, crushing them with a teaspoon until the water becomes dark yellow.




Utilizzo degli stimmiBefore reviving them, you can crumble the stigma pressing it with your fingers so you’ll have a more intense colour.

In this way, however, you’ll lose the beautiful appearance effect given by the presence of the entire pistils on the dish.
