It's worth its weight in gold. I've read its fabled history and people have surely died for it. It figures in Greek myth and in medieval times wars were fought over it. (e.g. the "Saffron War") But someone gave me a very small jar of saffron threads and I don't know what to do with it! What preparation, dish or recipe best brings out its legendary flavour?
