    Default Saffrom dishes?

    I've been looking for dishes w/ saffron, and would be glad for suggestions you have actually tried. Thanks. (Found this on an fb page, wc some may be interested in.)

    Did you know that around 75 % of the world saffron production comes from Spain? If you’re not familiar, Saffron is one of the essential ingredients of the paella dish! But more than just Spain's wondrous creation of the paella, the Spanish cuisine has introduced many new dishes that have the same bold and powerful flavors.

    mar,

    in the u.s., saffron is an almost 'unheard' of spice available to the 'common-man'...

    sometimes hub and I can find it at a 'great-reduction' at Ross, TG, and Marshalls, SOMETIMES,
    but-rarely...

    No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.

    Thanks for that... and i hoped there would be some recipe=). There was one i saw on utube abt making saffron tea.. to prevent some eye problems. As it tastes woody, i can take that, and using only 1 gram in a cup. Only the vid said the spice was a root, and i thot who would now believe. Still what harm in making the tea?

    I just had saffron rice with chopped ham spread and olive oil for dinner. It was positively habit forming!

    I seem to be doing something wrong when using saffron,as it never gives me that vibrant colour people speak of
    ( mine is from Marrakesh ... maybe I got tricked by a vendor )

    I tend to add it to the rice to (try to) give it a nice colour.
    I suppose you could also add it to a pot of stock.

    Found one:





    • Mix all ingredients in a Dutch oven or heavy-bottomed pot.
    • Cover, and cook over medium to medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, for about 1 hour, or until the chicken is very tender and pulls easily off the bone.
    • Do not add water, and be careful not to burn the chicken.
    • Reduce the liquids until they are mostly oils.
    • Discard the cinnamon sticks, and taste for seasoning. (The sauce should be a bit salty and peppery.).
