From the Test Kitchen

The key to fantastic, authentic paella is saffron. The deep orange threads are the stigmas of the saffron crocus, a small flower that’s cultivated primarily in Europe and Asia. Known as one of the most expensive spices by weight in the world, saffron threads are hand-picked from the flowers that contain only a few per plant. Because of the concentrated pigment and flavor, just a little goes a long way to scent, flavor, and color dishes like this one.
