    Sweetiebarbara's Note:

    Everyone loves this, even my mother, who claimed to not like rice. I grow Saffron, so I garnish the rice with a Saffron Crocus flower when I serve it. I use this as a side dish with Shrimp Creole (I recommend Shrimp Creole, along with a Spinach salad, and Lemon Meringue Pie). I adapted this from a 1973 Southern Living, Our Best Recipes, cookbook.

      Wow! This was very nice. I've never made saffron rice before and really enjoyed the flavor. I added a bit more salt, but that was it. It's plain, but for some reason my family was fighting over the leftovers. So, this gets a 5 for being simple, yet delicious!! Thanks for this recipe!! This goes into my favorites folder! :-)
