Before using, the stigmas are soaked in warm water or other liquid. To have the best result from our saffron pistils, they can be used in two ways:
a) Put the pistils in hot water or other liquid for over an hour so that the color and aroma are released. Both the liquid and the stigmas may be used to prepare your recipe.
b) Place the pistils to use on a piece of parchment paper and chop until they turn into dust. Pour the powder into the dish during the last few minutes of cooking, thanks to this process the flavors will be intensified.
