I’m pleased to say that production of saffron in Azerbaijan on Apsheron peninsula is being restored. I was so happy when my aunt arrived and brought me real fantastic saffron from Apsheron. When I opened the box, I could feel the smell of my childhood when I used to open my grandmother’s cupboard with saffron. It’s best to store it in a tightly closed small box or jar in a dark place.
How to make saffron infusion I have described here.
Have you seen how the flower of saffron looks? Here is it, a bouquet of saffron flowe. Beautiful, isn’t it?
