Cooking with Saffron...any good recipes???Page 1 of 1    
I recently was given a very nice gift of Saffron from friends who have family in Iran. 2 ounces (that's a lot!) of the most expensive spice in the world..only problem is..I don't have a clue as to how to cook with it.

Can anyone share some of their saffron recipes with me?

Thank you!

Saffron gives its distinctive favor (and yellow color) to many recipes, I mainly use it with rice, chicken, soups and in cream sauces. A very small quantity is needed (1 gram) as it is very potent. There are lots of recipes on the internet, Google it and you'll find everything you need - mostly Mediterranean and Middle Eastern recipes.

Thank you again SS..you are a wealth of information. All those recipes sound great. I'm going to make all of them. I'd like a bowl of the soup right now. :)

Don't lose your saffron!
A few years ago my Mom, for some reason, ordered some saffron from a spice company. But, when it came, she didn't want to cook anything with it.
So, one day I was at her house and she gave it to me! Yea! It was in a tiny little vial which I layed in the console of my car, while I drove home.
But, when I got to my house,, it was gone! Rolled away somewhere, I suppose. I looked forever, in the cracks of the seats, under the seats, under the floor mats and so on and on ~ I never found that little vial!
I mean really,, who would lose their saffron in the car??
