Why Real Saffron Is So Expensive | So Expensive

12 054
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.

I'm one of the many billions of people that have yet to, not just taste saffron, but to experience it, as well.
With how rapidly climate conditions are heating up, I may very well never, lest I be sold into slavery for one taste of authentic saffron.
I feel bad for y'all that make this stuff, yet your production is diminishing, on account of the declension on your harvest yields. However, humans are resilient; if there is another alternative, we will find it.

If a product is label "saffran", it is usually "fake" - meaning it's come from a flower that has far more stamen, so the harvest is a higher yield per flower, ergo less expensive.

“soil is strong bc of Allah” 🙄 duh , this is how dumb is every religious ppl, answer to everything is god, no it’s not
it’s simply lazy to think, lazy to find answer so they conclude everything with one answer “god”, so the soil if the gift from Allah then i can say all the islamic countries of north Africa is cursed by Allah for Sand of sahara desert
see the contradiction dumbass religious ppl
soil = god gift
sahara desert = god cursed Egypt Libya Algeria Sudan ?!!

My hometown produces probably the best quality Saffron (Krokos). It is produced in the homonymous village Krokos, in the region of Kozani, Greece. So if you see Krokos (Saffron) Kozanis, you know it's among the best!

If you ever get to drink Saffron tea, you can never go back to the normal one. The taste and aroma is just so unique and out of this world. There is no other thing like it. If you garnish it on your sweets, even a little bit, it will change its smell and taste. Its very delicious.

Climate change has such devastating impacts. If all of us could simply change our mindset the speed will be so much slower and we might even have the chance to save this planet!
Everyone has this negative mindset, even my own sister called me a 'Karen' for supporting this!
But I still feel like we could change, so heres some tips!
Reduce travel by car, you could walk, bike or even rollerskate to places!
REDUCE MEAT CONSUMPTION!! Now I'm not telling you to become vegan, but simply reduce meat or use alternative meat! There are now plant based meat which cost the SAME or even cheaper than meat while still tasting and having the same texture! Like a beyond burger. Some people have even said it tastes better than beef!
If you have the space, you could grow your own veggies! On a window shelf or a place of sunlight, you could grow your own herbs while SAVING money!!
Reduce plastic. This is a simple one, but honestly why does one need to buy bananas packaged in plastic?! Smh
Anyway, you could also reuse! Save all the cardboard bits you have and make somthing out of it, decorate it and make it a storage bin or even a darn shelf. There are plenty of opportunitues if you take the chance and do the research! I have cardboard boxes which i wrapped in spare fabric and I just store stuff under the bed.
If we all reduce things and possibly make it a trend the world could change! Just imagine breathing fresh air instead of stupid smoke, wouldn't that be nice? If we spread this people, even business will reduce packaging.
And to all you business owners. IF YOU HAVE TO USE PLASTIC. Please, and i mean it, research on alternatives and biodegradable plastic. Honestly you might even get more sales!
There are plenty of things you can do and these are just from the top of my head!
Stay safe and just be aware please!

It's sad to watch these short documentaries and realize that most of the issues of decline in production is due to climate change. Whether it's wine, saffron, avocadoes...:(
