Here are some ways to use saffron:
Steeping in water: One of the most common ways of adding saffron to a dish is to first steep it in water, like a tea. This is an easy method that requires nothing more than time. To do this, use boiled water that has had a moment to cool just slightly to draw out the best aromatics and colour from the saffron while minimising any bitter or metallic flavours. Brew it in water between 71°C and 77°C for 15 minutes.
Grinding to a powder: It's always best to grind your own. To do this, start by grinding a fat pinch of saffron threads in a small mortar and pestle. Once the threads have begun to break down, add a pinch of sugar, which acts as an abrasive, to reduce the saffron into a fine powder. Then, steep the crushed saffron in a small amount of liquid, such as warm water, stock, or milk, for about 20 to 30 minutes. If your recipe calls for a specific liquid, use that.
Toasting the powder: Toasting the saffron powder in olive oil on low heat will also help infuse it throughout whatever savoury food you’re preparing. This is a great way to use saffron in rice dishes, like Persian-style rice with saffron.
Topical applications: Topical applications of saffron are traditionally used to lighten, brighten, and clear skin. To use saffron in this way, soak a pinch of saffron threads in about 4 Tbsp (60 ml) of cold milk for several minutes, then splash the mixture onto freshly cleaned skin. After it dries, wash it away with lukewarm water.
Get creative but always remember that saffron is best used sparingly, as too much can overpower the desired benefit you are looking for.
