Saffron is the world's most expensive spice - 225,000 crocus stigmas are needed to make a single pound! The texture and flavor of this light and fluffy loaf will convince you it's worth it. This is bread for a special occasion - or bread that will make any occasion special. The distinctive old world flavor works majic with seafood and hearty soups like lentil or sausage.

If using saffron threads, grind to a coarse powder-like consistency using a mortar and pestle. The fresh powder will be more potent than the pre-ground so you'll need less.

Once opened, the intensity of a vial of saffron will diminish.

Use regular or rapid bake cycle.
