I'm really excited. I have been looking forward to buying this particular item for quite some time. Some girls are crazy about shoes, others save up for purses. I, on the other hand, splurged on saffron.
If you're in my family, you know exactly why this is a big deal, especially at this time of year. If you have no idea what saffron is, let me explain. Saffron is one of the lesser known spices. It is the world's most expensive spice by weight, so I don't buy it often...or, ever, really. But, it is an essential ingredient in Russian Easter bread, kulich. I remember eating this just about every year growing up, and I loved it!
Stay tuned next week for a report of my cooking adventure!
