    Saffron "harvest"

    I forget about the saffron crocuses in the yard until they start popping up this time of year with three lovely threads per blossom...

    They're still pretty little things after you pluck the threads.

    Put on a saucer and left on top of a warm oven to dry, and the whole kitchen smells of saffron.

    I just wish you could smell it as it dries. It's pretty wonderful.
