  If this thread has you drooling at the mere thought of saffron, here's
  where you can get it.
  
  Listed below are resources which will be helpful if you do not
  already have a good connection with a purveyor of the spice, the
  corms and recipes.
  
  My saffron purveyor for the last three years is listed.  I have
  bought many brands in addition to the ones he supplies for comparison
  and have found some comparable in quality but never in price or
  airtight packaging. You need to buy a minimum of 1/2 ounce from him.
  
  A source for liquid saffron, the only one available as far as I know,
  is also listed.  Actually this is saffron extract, not liquid saffron
  in that the threads have been steeped in alcohol and water for a
  month. There is an obvious advantage in measuring but make sure you
  use the extract only when you are cooking or baking.  For me the
  alcohol taste is too strong otherwise (for example in a mayonnaise).
  
  ANTIQUARIAN AND OUT-OF-PRINT COOKBOOKS:
  
  Thousands of cookbooks are available with saffron recipes but some of
  the more interesting ones are hard to find.  Jim Garrett, owner of
  Buchmann, specializes in searches for older titles and found many of
  my references.

  SAFFRON SWEET BREADS:
  
  They were out the day I went to investigate but the saffron baked
  goods sound delicious:  yeast baby loaves or cupcakes filled with
  dried fruit and nuts.  The owner is an Englishman, a famous inventor
  (first automatic doughnut machine, a pastie machine) who loves
  saffron and is still working at age 100.  In this part of California
  saffron breads, cupcakes and cookies used to be available in every
  family-owned bakery because the Cornish miners created a demand for
  them. Several grandchildren wistfully recounted memories for me of
  such wonders from grandmothers' kitchens.
