  • 1/4 tsp ground saffron never use the threads without grinding them
  • 2 ice cubes


  • Place the ice cubes in a small bowl or jar. Sprinkle ground saffron on top of the ice cubes and let it sit in room temperature until the ice is fully melted.
  • Use immediately or cover the bowl or jar and keep it in the fridge for up to a week.


  • I recommend using Mehr Saffron because the color, aroma and flavor is perfect for any recipe using saffron. 
  • NEVER consume saffron during pregnancy.
