From Farmlands of Pampore, Kashmir | Buy 100% Pure Saffron/Kesar
In Kashmir, saffron/kesar is called Kong and has a long history of being used in culinary (Kashmiri cusine, wazwaan), Kashmiri tea (Kehwa). Saffron is valued for its color, taste and aroma.
When buying saffron keep in mind that the best saffron has a deep red color, a honey like aroma with a delicate taste, but musky and earthy. Always buy saffron from a reliable source and only get dried stamens because they will keep their flavor well over 2 years, if stored in a cool dark place in an air tight container.
