Preparing the saffron for drying, La Ferme Lavancia, Puget-Théniers, France, 25 October 2013. In a delicate operation, the stigma are separated by hand from the rest of the flower, without breaking or squashing them as one hallmark of good quality saffron is the stigma being whole. The other flower parts are then composted, being of no further use.
