Saffron. Banana. Vanilla. Protein. FLUFF.

Have you ever bought saffron? By weight alone, it’s the most expensive spice in the cosmos. Stemming from its price, its scarcity, and the fact that, aside from adding it to paella, its usage has always escaped me, I’d never bought it before. Well, at the market yesterday I found a jar of saffron and in the basket it went.

Amazing, the saffron is amazing. How can one describe its utterly delicious and unique taste? I don’t think it’s possible. For a tiiiiiny bit of saffron you get suuuuuch a punch of taste!
