Saffron

Good afternoon,

Of course, besides Valencian Paellas or Risotto Milanese, what other dishes do you use Saffron for ?



Thank you in advance ..

we've made Mini Meatballs in Saffron Sauce Recipe | Bon Appetit several times as part of a tapas meal.

Saffron, like fleur de sel and white truffles, is just too expensive for me.
Will use achiote oil, annatto seeds & olive oil, for color knowing full well the taste is completely different.

We don't cook it that long, just until tender.

Skilletlicker, do you care to share your experience in using annatto seeds & olive oil? I buy annatto seed solution when making some kinds of cheese. I bought some annatto seeds to experiment with and so far I'm not clear (even after much noodling around the internet) on how to best get the color from the outside coating of the annatto seed, into a solution. Some say boil it in water, in an acid solution, some say boil it in water in a base solution, some say to use some oil with the water. You got anything?
