HOW TO FILL THE SAFFRON PISTILS
To revive the saffron pistils it is recommended to put them in very hot water, broth or milk, in an amount of liquid equivalent to a coffee cup for 0.1 grams of product (one sachet).
Cover the container of the infusion and wait at least 20 minutes before use, the time necessary for the crocina, a water-soluble substance present in large quantities in the pistils, to color the infusion with an intense golden-yellow color.
To speed up the brewing time to 10-15 minutes, the saffron pistils can be made into powder. We suggest placing the pistils on a folded sheet of parchment paper as if making a package, placing a very hot pot on it and letting the pistils toast for a few minutes.
At this point it is possible to crush the toasted pistils with mortar and pestle, or with the help of a spoon, directly on the baking paper. Once this is done, dilute the powder obtained in an amount of liquid equivalent to a cup of coffee for each sachet of saffron.
In order not to compromise its organoleptic and nutritional properties, it is advisable to avoid cooking saffron for a long period directly on the flame.
