How to produce saffron powder?

Stone-made mortars are the best option for grinding saffron in the home. Metal or brass-made mortars will result in burning the stigmas and the loss of saffron coloring and properties. In addition to the type of mortar, the speed of grinding is a crucial factor to determine the quality of powder. Grinding with high speed will result in a great loss of saffron quality. 

Saffron stigmas should be completely dried. There are some special machines to dry saffron stigmas. Such machines are suitable options for industrial, mass saffron production.

However, the saffron should not be overheated in the oven as it burns quickly.
