How to use Saffron to draw out the maximum flavour, colour, and aroma from a pinch of Saffron?
A “pinch” is about 20 common saffron threads. There are two methods for brewing saffron. Any leftover saffron liquid will keep in a tightly covered jar in the fridge for more than a week. Saffron liquid is deep red but will turn yellow when mixed with food.
Method 1) Brewing in hot water: The best way to extract flavour from saffron is to soak the threads in warm (not boiling) liquid for about 30 minutes before using. Then add the juice to the dish, usually towards the end of cooking. If you like, you can strain the threads out before you combine the liquid, but it’s a fiddly job, and the threads look good in any case.
Method 2) Brewing with ice: Put a pinch of saffron in a small bowl or cup. Add an ice cube (crushed ice is best). Leave to infuse for about ten minutes or until the ice has completely melted. The gradual melting of the ice will bring out the colour and aroma of Saffron very nicely. Use the liquid as required.
Add saffron threads to a teaspoon of hot water and once liquid forms, add it to your marinade, or while cooking rice. You get natural colour in the food without the need for preservatives or artificial agents.
