Cooking with Saffron, the World's Priciest Spice

Cooking with saffron has been a prized practice since prehistory. This golden, precious spice is the epitome of an artisanal treat.

When all the flowers in your garden are dying and succumbing to early frosts, imagine waking up to a burst of bright purple, yellow and crimson. Imagine, too, the money you will save by growing, harvesting and toasting your very own saffron.
