One More Pretty Thing

Whether you like the flavors in Indian foods or not no one can not like the beauty of saffron.
Gathered from the field and piled high in a basket just increases the intensity of its color.

Just the other day I found out it takes 75000 blooms for a pound of saffron spice. who knew? I went to buy a bottle for a recipe I was making and the bottle cost $21. Needless to say, I went another route.
