Even in the expensive world of spices, saffron stands out. Real saffron can cost you over $10,000 per kilogram. No machine can do the delicate work required to harvest these thin threads. It can take 40 hours of hard manual labor to produce just 1 kilogram of high-quality saffron.

  • 40 hours to make 1kg of saffron. When you know that 1kg saffron costs 10000 dollars, that means you get "paid" 250 dollars per hour to pick saffron.

  • I do NOT buy the expensive so called Spanish saffron from the stores. I ask my friends to bring me some from Iran. You would realize the AMAZING quality ONLY when comparing with expensive Spanish saffron! Iran produces the highest quality of saffron in the world, its proven!

  • It's Kashmir then debate must be happening but no one there would take time to understand the hardworking of farmers from all the lands wether bihar deserts of Rajasthan or Kashmir, it's them who produce sustain the whole country and the world but the politics and British raj has done what it wanted to and we are just following their steps the raj wanted to divide and rule which they did for more than 2 centuries, parties want vote so they divided us own Hindu Muslims, and we people here just doing the same dividing the opinion with the division of hearts, some kashmiri say they don't want India, they don't want Pakistan either nor china what do they want is the question we non kashmiri will ask and boil each other each hate speech and there are soldiers who are there on the borders to protect whole country. When will this stop God when?

  • In northern Greece close to the city of kozani is also produced safran. I never liked it's taste and if you put a little more of it on your food ... It smells (in my opinion) bad. Some people put it on tsipouro (same as raki) and it becomes immediately yellow! As a tea... I dont loke it either. As food colouring ... Ok. (You can colour your clothes too) But ... The land is looking like a colourful carpet when it is blooming

  • it's kind of a shame though, crocuses are such beautiful flowers i wish there was a way to preserve the rest of the flower while harvesting the saffron (pressing and drying removes some of the color and shape...)

  • I never knew what those strange flowers were in my yard now I know. They were sparse and not a lot of them. I lived in a area that had red soil and they would bloom in the morning and close by night each day new ones bloomed. I wonder why as a flower they are called crocus and picked and dried it’s saffron?

  • Amazing Video. Bitcoin has faced a rather strong resistance after its explosion to the $11,100 highs. At the recent lows, the asset traded as low as $10,300 - around 8% ish below the local highs couple of weeks back. Despite this slight slip and the fact that BTC remains above $14,000, we should all remain bullish on Bitcoin. I think bitcoin could soon move higher to $20,000 in a couple of days. As a crypto trader the past few weeks has recorded immerse benefits all round,,, my only regret now is not knowing Mr taylor on time, his top notch signals remains the bedrock of the successes recorded in my personal trading portfolio. his trading technics helps me get my profit... i already made $100k with his. investing on cryptocurrencies is now the new source of income for everyone he continues to be an inspiration to all who have been fortunate to have made use of his signals.You all can reach out to him through morgantaylor587@gmail.com or on WhatsApp +1 409 299 3921

The deeds of wrongdoers are being recorded in detail. God is just. Trust in Him. He's just letting injustice manifest before He finally judges mankind.
