Rub it in, rub it in! Grudgingly I'll admit that it's beautiful.

Saffron is a spice derived from the flower of the saffron crocus (Crocus sativus), a species of crocus in the family Iridaceae. A C. sativus flower bears three stigmas, each the distal end of a carpel. Together with their styles—stalks connecting stigmas to their host plant—stigmas are dried and used in cooking as a seasoning and colouring agent. Saffron, for decades the world's most expensive spice by weight, is native to Southwest Asia and grows pretty much everywhere else in the world

Saffron is marked by a bitter taste and an iodoform- or hay-like fragrance; these result from the chemicals picrocrocin and safranal. A carotenoid dye, crocin, allows saffron to impart a rich golden-yellow hue to dishes and textiles. Saffron has further medicinal applications. Thats all I know , thanx to Wika. Danny

yep, every once in a while I buy some to cook "paella" with... (better than the "fake stuff" I keep on the shelf) -- southern France is where it's mostly cultivated in Europe, I believe...
