Saffron

4 Comments Move to Australia, Typically Swedish

Christmas is only a month away and even though I don’t have exactly have the same Christmas feeling here as I probably would in Sweden this time of the year I’ll try to make my first Christmas living in Australia a nice one, combining the Australian traditions (which basically includes drinking beer and having BBQs, with some Swedish ones). It’s over 30 degrees today so there will be no baking on hot day like this but I would like to make some saffron buns on a less hot day. Only one issue, I have I no idea on where I get saffron from. It might be that you can get it in the supermarket as in Sweden (I haven’t really started investigating this yet) but I thought maybe one of you reader’s have the answer.

    I found it in the Czech Republic, and in the US you can get it at the store. It is in the spice seciton, it is a yellow spice. Pretty expensive in general for a spice, but lussebullar are so yummy! I’ll be making my recipe this year 🙂

      Thanks Swedish Freak! Yes, I know what it looks like I used it all the time in Sweden. Given it’s such an expensive spice it’s always sold over the counter in Sweden so I thought that you might not be able to find it in the normal spice section here, but I’ll definitely have a look. 🙂
