This rice is fantastic! I serve it w& any delicately flavored meat or fish. Although saffron is expensive, it lasts forever since a little goes a long way. I& talking, about 5 threads to season the entire pot.
Wow--I am probably going to make this tonight, just substituting the basmati rice & saffron threads with a Jasmine Saffron Rice mix from the Amboy Market. Check it out: Saffron Rice with Golden Raisins and Pine Nuts (from an Edible Mosaic) / Bev Cooks
