Using Saffron

Tips for Using Saffron

Be sure not to add saffron threads directly to foods.  The flavor is better distributed when the spice is is first allowed to soften in a little warm water.  Wait until the water takes on a yellow color and then add it to the dish.

Use Saffron sparingly in recipes, because adding too much can produce a bitter taste.  In addition, a large dose of saffron can make you ill, and more then 1/3 oz can be fatal.
