This sweet includes two botanicals of ancient Israel - sugar cane and saffron. The much revered saffron come from the flower of the saffron crocus - the long, red threads attached to the flower are plucked and used in a variety of ways. The saffron spice was long used for flavor, scent, and as a divine offering. The rock sugar comes in a bag with the story - and a related Biblical quote - on the label. Comes with one string.
"Spikenard and saffron; calamus and cinnamon...all the chief spices." Song of Solomon, 4:14
