Hello all, I wanting to purchase some saffron, as I have never used it but have found some good looking recipes that call for it. I am wanting to order online and was hoping to get some help on what exactly to get. I want the Kashmiri variety. Should I get the Baby Brand or Shahi-Kessar brand by Royal Saffron? If I go Baby Brand should I go with 5-1 gram pack, 1- 5 gram packs, or the blister pack containing 100- 50mg packs. I like the idea of the blister packs for freshness but don't know how much 50mg adds up to for an average recipe. If I go Shahi-Kessar I can get 2- 5 gram packs for only $20 more than the Baby Brand, but would I be able to tell a difference? Anyways, help with this would be great!
