How to Choose Saffron

Since this spice is expensive, there are many adulterated versions out there in the market. There are some versions of saffron sold more cheaply and these contain additives and colorings to make them resemble the real saffron. The highest quality saffron are those which are All-Red and deep in color. Another way to find out if the saffron is real is by soaking it in cold water. Real saffron will take about 15 minutes or more to get a slight yellow/golden hue and give off a beautiful aroma while the fake ones will give off color immediately as they contain artificial coloring.
