(SHIPS SEPTEMBER 2022) Talk about a cash crop, the dried stigmas and styles of Crocus sativus are known as one of the most expensive spices by weight; now you can grow your own saffron in your garden. Saffron is revered for its unique flavor that has been described as a slightly metallic honey with hay notes. Saffron has a remarkable history; it is said that Cleopatra liked her bath scented with saffron. (Caution: Only the stamens are edible. The leaves, flowers and bulbs of this plant are poisonous if ingested. Do not take internally.)
