Azafran in Mexico

kare_raisu | Jun 17, 200810:36 AM     9

The best thing I had the opportunity to eat during 10 days in Guadalajara and surrounding Jalisco was Menudo Amarillo this past Sunday.

I cannot determine what I would do if I had to choose between Laja and that outrageously haunting yellow colored soup..that good.

It was not offered anywhere I could see but the mother of the friends I went with first mentioned it to me before leaving San Diego and I was intrigued.

Her sister we stayed with offered to make it when we mentioned it and gawd was it good with her daughter's butter-like hand made tortillas.

When we went to the Market in Zapopan to pick up the spice from the chile and dried dealer - I expected the flower that you are used to for making Paella in Spain. The thing is it looked like whole peppercorns with a yellow interior that you ground. Picked up 100g.

I cant find anything about this - does anyone have an idea? Its not tumeric and has a special unique flavor and aroma.
