Could I make this by steeping saffron threads instead of using ground saffron?
This may seem like a silly question, but I only have saffron threads. It seems like it would take a lot of threads to make a teaspoon of ground saffron, and it would also be quite expensive. Additionally, I think I could grind my entire jar of threads and not fill a teaspoon! Could I use just a pinch of threads instead a teaspoon of ground saffron? Thanks!
