Q: What are some uses for saffron that aren't rice or couscous recipes? I have some saffron I'd like to use, but I don't eat a lot of rice or other grains.

Editor: Saffron is actually quite a versatile spice that can be used in both savory and sweet recipes. Try it rubbed onto baked chicken, stirred into frozen yogurt base and sweet carrot pudding, or added to filling for stuffed peppers! It adds both a unique flavor and sunny color to whatever you cook it into.
