Learned something today…saffron and safflower are not the same. Not even close. Nope.
And here we (wife) were, thinking we had discovered the NYC source of saffron and that we would strike it rich reselling smaller amounts at a higher price but still less than the insane prices the grocery stores charge. We would build an empire! So many oysters bars could be build with secret saffron money. World. Domination.
Not even close. Nope.
But safflower tea will be added to the menu.
See you upstate!
