Saffron has a long and fascinating history as seasoning, dye, perfume and medicine (or medicinal ingredient.) In ancient times it was widely used to cure anything and everything.

Romans liked to sprinkle saffron on the streets when Emperor Nero did a walkabout. The saffron would mask the odour of the streets, and - more to the point - the "rabble" in the streets. MORE
