Grind 0.1 grams of saffron threads in a mortar and soak in a little warm water (4cl) and then add to the rice. Add salt and butter to the rice and cook until the rice has absorbed the water.

The plant / botany for saffron (Crocus Sativus)

From a botanical point of view it is a very interesting plant! As we know it as a spice - it's just the orange-red pistil threads inside the purple flower of a crocus species! It is the "Crocus Sativus".

Many people think the crocus is an onion plant! But completely wrong: Saffron is a perennial bulbous plant. It comes from the iris family. Unlike our native species of crocuses, the saffron bulb does not grow until autumn and remains in the ground for the rest of the year.
