Thanksthat should help! i'll have to have a good look see at the grocery stores around me!


I don't know if you have these stores where you live, but in IL we have what's called Fresh Pick Market stores. They are a grocery store, but have mainly fruit and veggies and not much "shelf" foods. As a result they have a lot of ethic foods in the line of spices and stuff. Just an idea...hope you find it!

Ensure it is not safflower you are getting - it looks similar to saffron but is a very poor imitation (i.e. it would definitely turn a person off if s/he thought it was saffron). The good saffron from Iran and Spain is very expensive (about $40-$50 for about 1 tbsp) but as mentioned the grocery store stuff is cheaper (but sufficient and sort of similar to the real thing!). Great in Risotto Milanese and paella! :)

To get the most flavour from your saffron make sure to steep it in some hot or warm liquid rather than just throwing it into a dish. The threads are from a specific species of crocus that only blooms a short time each year and are hand picked (each crocus only has a few) - that is why the authentic thing is so darned expensive.

Good luck finding some - I hope you do!

Good job! You can make extra rice an freeze it in a baggie with your name on it. Then pop it out when you need some. I have found it stays good in the freezer for 3 months. Sometimes I cook little bits of carrot with the rice for a little added nutrition.



Thanks for the tip!!! I have a rice steamer that cooks my rice in the microwave in 6 minutes to perfection but I will keep that in mind for trips bc as sad as it is I can't take all my cooking goodies with me

We had left-over home-made chili. We just introduced white beans and tomatoes after about 6 months with no nightshades or legumes, so it has been pretty exciting! :)

Red potatoes with butter and fresh chives from my garden, corn on the cob, and mushroom sauteed in butter, onions, and garlic.

This is our farmer's market meal.

Proofreader, copy editor, herb gardener and an evolving gluten-free cook.

Had a reaction to wheat, oats, rye, and barley in a lab test done by a homeopathic doctor in 1997. Have been mostly gluten-free since then. Also highly allergic to MSG.

Here's a quote I ran across when researching self-advocacy for children with special needs that I like: "Our subconscious picks up on each positive action we take on our own behalf, lifting the spirit and deepening our self-respect." Kat James
