We all know this spice. Coined as the most expensive spice in the world, we love to cook with this tiny little thread. It is mainstay in any Latin kitchen. Used for rich yellow/reddish coloring and a smoky flavor, we primarily use it in our yellow rices and some meat dishes. Though saffrons pocket pinching pricetag, a fine, high-grade batch of threads will yield enough color and flavor to last a long time. If you don’t have saffron dollars, a great substitute is either annatto or achiote, both coloring agents with similar properties. My fave dish to use saffron in, “arroz con pollo”! I’ll soon post on how to use it with some recipes. Enjoy!
Eat well, love unapologetically, pray with true intention, and take care of yourself.
