The term saffron comes from the Arabic / Persian. Saffron is a species of crocus that flowers purple in autumn. The saffron spice is extracted from the pistils of its flowers.
Saffron tastes bitter-tart-hot, which - unlike the typical scent - does not come into play at normal dosage, and contains carotenoids, especially crocin, which are responsible for the fact that dishes flavored with saffron turn an intense golden yellow color.
In order to preserve the aromatic scent, saffron should not be boiled for too long. It is advisable to soak the scar thighs in a little warm water for a few minutes and to add the liquid to the dish towards the end of the cooking time. An even more intense color is obtained when the saffron threads are freshly ground in a mortar.
