    Gourmet Mancha Saffron.
    The red Stigmas on the crocus flower when dried is Saffron for those that do not know.

    Comes from the "La Mancha" plains of Spain.

    Anyone on here cook with it?

    I have a very little left.
    Priced it today,WOW $1318.95 per pound.$89.79 per ounce retail.

    This is some of the best seasoning you can get.

    Yes, Bo...I use it. Although it IS really expensive, you don't use very much of it at a time. I use it in my indian sweets, such as Kheer (indian rice pudding).

    I use it when I cook paellas, which I do with some frequency (ever since I acquired some cheap paella pans). There's a very nice-sized jar, larger than my fist, from Costco in my freezer - I'm not sure of the net weight, but it's quite a hunk of saffron. It'll probably do me for sixty or seventy paellas, if not more.
