It is not very easy to grow saffron, but the best way is to collect seeds and grow them in the open, in a room that has no direct sunlight. These saffron can be then dried and eaten in a tea.
What is the color of saffron?
Saffron is usually greenish-yellow, with some red coloring. The color can range from light green to dark red.
Why do many people call saffron “cinnamon”?
Saffron is also called cinnamon, because in some parts of ancient India, cinnamon was considered the “kiss of heaven,” and it was called thus in India. This name is also a nod to ancient East India spices, like cinnamon, ginger and garam masala, and the Hindu belief that it is a source of good luck or prosperity.
Is saffron more nutritious?
Saffron does not appear to have any greater nutritional value than cinnamon. In fact, cinnamon is not even considered a nut, even though it may be very important for health. Cinnamon contains all 6 essential amino acids that are required by all cells, whereas saffron has only 1 or 2 of the essential amino acids. Thus, the claim that saffron has “significantly better benefits with increased energy and mental clarity” is probably based on misinformation. But it is important to realize this.
Saffron is a very rare gem that can be obtained only from India. It is not easily accessible in many countries abroad; if it could in the United States, it would probably still be on the endangered species list. In some areas today, saffron is sometimes imported as saffron soap.
