In this very short post we will do a simple calculations to understand how much a Saffron Risotto costs.
1-Rice. Use only High Quality Rice: a Vialone Nano IGP for example.
A Carnaroli can also be good.
Our Organic Saffron in whole stigmas
2-Saffron: we're talking about authentic Saffron, in threads. The so-called "sachets", for us, are not to be confused with true Saffron.
But you can do the proof.
Open a sachet and try to smell it. Then open a jar of our saffron in stigmas and you will understand what we mean.
Cost of a Saffron Risotto for 3 people.
- Rice: 3 portions of 60g. Cost of an excellent Vialone Nano IGP(6 eur / kg) = 0.06x3x6 = 1.1 eur
- Saffron: 10 threads, or about 0.05g. Cost of 0.05g of our organic saffron about 1.65 eur.
Total = 1,1 + 1,65 = 2,75 eur for an excellent risotto for 3 people.
