Oh the Elusive Saffron
I have to say that I have the most amazing people in my life, first of all! I have been seeing a lot of use with saffron lately and realized that I have never tried it, nor did I really know what to do with it. All I knew was that it is expensive. Well I shared my lack of culinary knowledge and foodie experience with someone very close to me and how I had looked everywhere in our town for the herb and could not find it. Well being the wonderful and amazing person that she is, she went on a secret saffron mission. She came over for dinner that I was making and brought me a present. It was the most beautiful jar I had ever seen, the tiny little threads of red whimsy carefully placed inside, sealed tightly waiting to enrich the meal of choice (that now I have to do research on). I was so excited and thankful and surprised that she found it before I did, definitely not complaining though! So now I embark on the task of finding the perfect dish to experiment with it in. Oh JOY!
