Ever Used Safflower (Mexican Saffron) Before?

Norm | Mar 18, 2004 06:56 PM

In the Mexican spice sectiob of my local supermarket, I noticed a package of "Safflower" Mojave brand of Mexican saffron -- only $0.89 for a quarter ounce. Anyone ever used safflower before and how does it compare with real saffron?

I saw a Cuban recipe for paella that used anatto as an expensive substitute for saffron.
