Potatoes With Saffron

This is  a little different….everyone will want to know just what you did….just smile….and keep them guessing!


  • pinch of real saffron threads (about 14-15)
  • 1  1/4 cups of water
  • 6 potatoes
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • pinch of salt and freshly ground pepper

Crumble the threads into the water. Peel the potatoes and cut into 1/4 inch slices. Rinse really well with cold water and pat dry with paper towels.

Heat the butter in a large skillet and when the foam subsides, place the potato slices in and cook for 2 minutes each side, turning carefully.  Add the saffron infused water and pour over the potatoes with the salt and pepper and briskly simmer uncovered for about 6 minutes.

Reduce the heat to medium low and simmer for a further 15-17 minutes until tender and the water has evaporated.

Serve with lamb or beef, vegetable and salad. Wow! You have exotic tasting potatoes and only YOU know the secret.
