  • Saffron
    Culinary Uses Of Saffron Spice
    What we know as saffron spice comes from a plant called Saffron crocus, which is indeed a type of spring-blooming crocus. The parts of the plant that are used in saffron spice are the stigmas and the styles in the center of the flower. These are dried, and thus turned into a culinary wonder. Although it is an expensive spice, a little bit of it goes a long way in flavoring a variety of dishes.

    A Tasty Chai Tea Recipe
    Chai tea is a wildly popular drink, and deservedly so. Chai is typically made by combining black tea with selected spices and milk. This mix of tea, spices, milk and sweetener, makes a delectable drink during and after meals. Although the word “chai” refers simply to “tea” in many different languages and cultures, in North America, chai tends to be thought of as what is known in India as Masala chai. No matter what is called, chai tea is well known for its wonderfully unique taste and you’ll be glad to know it’s easy to make with a simple chai tea recipe.
