  1. I had heard of saffron as a spice in the old trading routes and that it is still being used today although not by me. But maybe I should use it as an appetite suppressant as you mentioned because I am desperate to lose weight. I will have to look into it… Beautiful looking plant…and flower….

  2. Glad to see this post, always wanted to know what Saffron was like and never used it nor seen it on the shelves.
    Not many know about Saffron, but I think it is a yellow dye and a very expensive spice.
    If you can grow it, well that is fabulous!

    I would like to try it.
