The saffron from Jiloca is located in terms of quality among the best crocuses in the world, analytically it is the most complete bread that exists given its high levels of Crocina Flavoring power), Pirocrocin (Coloring power) and Safranal (aromatic power), it is also worth noting its high performance to be able to use a gram for 60 individual servings.
The reason why the saffron from Jiloca gives such high parameters is due to its artisan elaboration in the three most important steps to obtain it:
- Collecting the flower
o The collection is done early in the morning, when the flower is still closed (cocooned) and the briznes still retain all the freshness and therefore will be noticed at the time of roasting. If the flower opens, the briznes shrink and land can enter them if the day is rainy.
- Debris of the flower
o The debris is performed manually by people trained to do so, before the constant vigilance of the supervisor the operators must cut the flower by the base and obtain the three pistils together with the minimum corner, in this way you get the whole strand and once the saffron roasted maintains a magnificent presence. It is also important that the remains of flower and tabs are removed with the saffron in green to avoid further handling when cleaning and if it is cleaned once roasted the saffron is broken and its quality decreases.
- Saffron Roasting
o Roasting is the most important part in the process of obtaining a quality saffron, this step always it is done by a person with great experience and supported by its results in previous seasons, it is a job in which we must maintain constant attention to the evolution of toasting, it is done in a very soft source of heat which is placed under the sieve (traditional utensil with silk cloth) and you have to turn the saffron when the craftsman sees fit, the objective is to eliminate all moisture and that the saffron maintains a color that impacts the view, the result has of being a bright red and a completely dry saffron. If the saffron is left with moisture when it finishes drying it only darkens and if it dries too much it can be burned, losing production.
