      This butter is savory and so pretty. Saffron is so expensive, this is a worthy use for it.

      The butter that we're getting these days is a lot closer in color to white than it is to yellow. That said, pale color or not, this is delicious and will enhance beef, chicken, fish, veggies or bread. I no longer have a mortar and pestle so I have to rub my saffron as fine as possible with my fingers, which, isn't very fine. I chose to put it in a pretty wee crock because I dislike really hard butter. Butter and saffron, pure luxury!

      I love butter, and flavored butter is even better. This is a very nice recipe. I used it over vegetables and was very happy with the results. Thanks for sharing :)
