It's that time of year again. The saffron is blooming and there are many more this year than last. I pulled the treads from one of the flowers and my finger where the juice hit is now a lovely yellow color with a hint of the aroma I can anticipate. I will get around to harvesting them some more later today and see what I have so far. A quick look revealed at least four flowers and many sprouts.
The purple color is a welcome sight as the air chills and unfortunately killed all my tomato plants. As always, next year will be better.
I plan to make a nice saffron bread from my egg bread recipe. The flavors should work well together.
