Coming out as a hater

Saffron; the world's most expensive spice.


Let me just put this out there, I think you are overrated. There I said it.

I have tried to love you. I have openly embraced you. And what have you done for me? Huh?

That's right! On several occasion you have ruined my dinner. You have spread your perfume far and wide, overwhelming entire meals with your intoxicating aroma and your brilliant colour. Shame on you. I have tried using you gingerly, with barely a strand and what do you do, you run and hide. Then I turn around and use recommended amounts of you and what do you do, you stand up and smack me in the face with a complete lack of respect.

Saffron, the world's most expensive spice, I do not like you. You have bitten me in the rear more than once and I'm not going to let you do it again.

PS: The amount of Saffron in the picture is 1/2 a teaspoon...the amount required for the recipe I was making.

Sounds like saffron was getting a bit fresh! I have to agree though. It's like Dick Cheney's mother says, "All that labor for this?!" -JD
