Unfortunately, some saffron dealers color saffron roots, powder them, and sell them as first-class saffron powder. Or they powder expired and low-quality saffron. Some of them even mix turmeric powder or paprika powder with saffron powder and sell it as original saffron powder.

How to use saffron powder
If you have prepared saffron in the form of its stigmas, to increase the taste and aroma as well as the amount of color of saffron, you should first powder it and then brew it and use it in food which we will explain how to powder saffron in the following.

You can also have a better color of saffron using a few pieces of ice instead of brewing saffron powder.
You can prepare saffron powder at home using the traditional method using a special saffron mortar or using a grinder machine
In the traditional method, it is enough to pulverize saffron with a small amount of powdered sugar or sugar in the mill. The use of powdered sugar or sugar cubes in the preparation of homemade saffron powder is only for better crushing of saffron in the mill, and the better your saffron strands are crushed, the more its color will increase. If you use sugar cubes, you must first turn them into powder and then add saffron to them.
The best mortar you can use to grind saffron is small stone mortars, and metal or brass mortars can not pulverize saffron strings as well as stone mortars. It should be noted that grinding saffron with metal mortars or grinding quickly, causes saffron to burn, in which case saffron loses its properties and color to a significant extent.
Note that when grinding saffron, its strands must be completely dry, so if the saffron you are using is not fresh and dried, this saffron must first be dried in the oven or on a gas flame and then ground. do. The process of drying saffron in the oven is better because the heat hits it from all sides. But be careful that saffron should not be left in the oven too much because it will burn and spoil quickly.
