What Makes Saffron the Most Expensive Spice in the World?
The first time I ever saw a saffron field, was in the autumn of 1987. It was a moonlit night and I was being driven back to Srinagar from Pahalgam.
I had finished the last of my slide film in Pahalgam, and I sat back in the ageing Ambassador, smug that I had done a good day’s work. Little did I
guess that the sight that was to unfold 70 kilometres away would leave me stupefied with amazement. There was an unending carpet of pale mauve
flowers, every detail etched sharply in the moonlight. But the miracle was that the carpet stretched on as far as the eye could stretch: uphill, down
dale, tumbling over hillsides and contours of the plateau for which Pampore was so famous. Those days, there were no cell phones and certainly
no smartphones, so the best I could do was to store the image in my mind’s eye, where it remains firmly lodged to this day.Saffron is a spice as
well as a colour. It also is a near magical substance, being the stuff of myths of several countries. There is one plausible reason for it: saffron has
been known for at least 3,000 years (and perhaps much longer), but saffron does not reproduce on its own – unlike most other plants, it needs
human intervention to be grown. Given that saffron was probably first grown in what is now Iraq, it means that humans have ensured that it has
spread to Abruzzo in Italy, La Mancha in Spain, Pampore in Kashmir and, most importantly, a wide swathe around the city of Mashad in Iran.Today,
while the giant’s share of the world’s saffron crop comes from Iran, one-tenth originates in Kashmir and the rest come from Greece, Italy, and even
Afghanistan as a United Nations measure to help impoverished farmers with a viable alternative to poppy cultivation. Tiny boutique crops also come
from New Zealand, Argentina and, believe it or not, Switzerland, where gentlemen farmers want the cachet of calling themselves saffron growers,
but don’t have the manpower to spend back-breaking hours at dawn, during the plucking season, bending six inches from the ground to pick flowers.
It is the reason why Spain’s famed La Mancha crop of saffron has been dwindling year after year: European Union minimum wages price Spanish
saffron right out of the market.Also read: (6 Local Markets You Must Visit in India if You Love Food)
How to Distinguish Real Saffron?
Because it is such painstaking work to obtain one kilo of saffron, the trade is usually rife with substances that closely resemble the real thing. It is
only a fair degree of expertise that can distinguish between the two. Sanjay Raina, a caterer of fine Kashmiri food, points out that while real
saffron must have a sweet smell, it must never actually taste sweet. Drop a few strands in water, and while both the real and the fake will leach
their colour into the water, the real saffron will remain crimson, while the pretender will turn white.Harpreet Singh Chhabra of Baby Saffron, one
of the most reliable brands in the world, cautions against buying a few strands in a plastic box without a brand name, address or telephone number
from a person you don’t know. His logic is that when the seller is an identifiable entity, it becomes less easy to indulge in malpractices. Chhabra, of
course, can tell good quality saffron from poor quality; real saffron from fake and this year’s crop from old saffron that is past its sell-by date.
Apparently, it is not uncommon to mix fake and real saffron together. It is also not unheard of to keep saffron strands more moist than they
should be, because water makes them heavy!
