    Iranian Zargol Saffron (Harvested February 2019)

    In ancient Persia, saffron was used in several diverse applications, to such an extent that it eventually became a cultural feature in a Persians day-to-day life. Some fine examples of how it was used both in ancient and modern times include:

    1) In Cooking: saffron can be used as an ingredient in many different dishes to add an aromatic, sweet, and honeyed flavor.
    2) In Perfumery: saffron has been used in numerous perfumes for it’s extremely fragrant, sweet and floral nature.
    3) As a Natural Remedy: The many medicinal properties of Saffron have been documented numerous times in the medical field. Some of these properties include being an antioxidant, as well as serving as a tonic to fight against fevers.

    When it comes to discerning the different grades of saffron, one must take note of it’s color, scent, and flavor. Top grade saffron is called Zargol, consisting of only dark red stigma tips, making it the most aromatically flavorful and the highest quality, which is what you’ll be getting when you order this saffron.

    0.5g: $2.7

    I got some saffron from Ahmad last year. For what it was being Persian saffron it is a brilliant price. Even better now.

    Sargol is one of the top grades if not the top.

    Iv received some of this saffron, without question this is the best Iv ever tried. I'm a big fan of saffron and have tried countless batches, I even grew it for 11 year. None held a candle to this Zargol

    I agree with Stephen, this is one of the best saffrons I have ever tried and it ages beautifully. I rate this above the royal grade kashmiri saffron as well. Plus Ahmad is a gentlemen to deal with.

    I tell you what it must be a special season as I have other Iranian Zargul , Afghani, Kashmiri, Spanish, and other odd growers but they don't come close to these beautiful strands, I smelt this, it was so good I took it immediately to my respected father as a gift.

    I don't think I've ever seen or smelled saffron in person. But it looks cool from the pictures, I like the deep red color.

    I recently saw a picture recently (maybe on this forum but I forget) where someone put the saffron as it is in above picture into a attar or sandalwood oil. It looked really cool. I wonder how long it would take for it to fully blend together like that. And how the scent of the oil or attar will change...

    It is a very special and beautiful smell. Different and unique.

    I have a few sandalwood/ saffron macerations now. I also have some saffron in perfumers alcohol. They are just a few months old but already started to smell lovely :)
