    Ini berawal setahun ini selama tinggal di Doha Qatar setiap kali pergi ke toko khas menjual stuff khas arab terutama makanan, selalu saja terlihat sejumput benang2 halus berwarna keemasan atau merah tua dengan kemasan botol kecil. baru tau ternyata itu yang namanya Saffron, banyak oarang timur tengah membelinya baik untuk campuran makanan, minuman, parfum sampai pengobatan. kemarin saya coba membelinya karena untuk meredahkan rasa penasaran yang berkesinambungan selain memang tertarik manfaatnya, juga buat oleh2 ibu di Indonesia . Sebagaian saya komsumsi untuk campuran teh ( baru mau coba untuk campuran makanaan ). untuk harga lumayan mahal dari tingkatan qualitas dan asal saffron ini biasanya menjadi salah satu parameternya. jenis yang saya beli kemarin kata penjualnya qualitasnya bagus ( aselinya saya & suami belum bisa membedakan untuk satu ini he..he..) berasal dari Iran, warnanya merah keemasan/ternyata bervarisai dan kemasan yang menarik ( per 6 gram sekitar 40 qr atau setara dengan 125 ribu rupiah).
    berikut artikel tentang saffron lebih dikenal sebagai bungah termahal selain juga manfaatnya yang sangat banyak.

    Historical Background :
