Tumeric is also known as Indian saffron."
For saffron [ substitute ] I prefer Annato oil. If you have a latino or Filipino market look for annotto seeds. Then heat 2 cups of vegetable oil to about 350, add seeds then turn off the heat. Allow to cool, strain and bottle. Refrigerate.
|Are there any other Saffron Substitue I can use?|
|If you tell us what you are cooking we might be more helpful. Are you just going for color, flavor or both?? I just made saffron rice tonight and it took very little saffron.......remember to grind it before adding to the the broth. I love the flavor!
-- turmeric --
(for color, NOT FLAVOR!! ; use 4 times as much)
-- safflower --
(use 8 times as much; less expensive and imparts similar color, but taste is decidedly inferior)
-- marigold blossoms --
(for color, not flavor; use twice as much)
-- annatto seeds --
(Steep 1 teaspoon annatto seeds in 1/4 cup of boiling water for 30 minutes, discard seeds. Reduce liquid in recipe by 1/4 cup.)
-- red and yellow food coloring --
|Can I use ginger instead of Saffron Season, and how much can I use to make it taste good?|
