Yellow Snow, No. Yellow Rice, Yes.

Have you ever had saffron rice?

I was trying to think what to have one day, and I spotted a tiny container of saffron threads I'd picked up on closeout somewhere. Saffron, as you may or may not know, is the stigma of a particular kind of crocus. Yeah. Now tell me who figured that one out.

ANYWAY, I added the saffron, some butter, and some corn to a pot of jasmine rice, and we had this pretty and delicious dish.
The tiny red container is my saffron stash.
