Saffron…

“This is my invariable advice to people: Learn how to cook- try new recipes, learn from your mistakes, be fearless, and above all have fun!” – Julia Child

And fun did I have today… I went on a scavenger hunt. For saffron…

Not that it’s necessarily difficult to find. But I also didn’t want to buy a large container and spend $20 on something I’ve never used before – my regular market had it for $19.59! Ouch… so, I found this small container (a little bit bigger than a Quarter) at World Market, for $4.99 (a product of India).

The saffron is very tightly packed into this little container. . .

And once you open it they just start falling out. . .

In a few days I will use this to make a saffron risotto… it will not be my first attempt at risotto. But it WILL be my first attempt at saffron risotto. I look forward to the experiment…
