Hot Tip

Make a saffron infusion by adding a small amount of pre-heated liquid (e.g. water, stock or milk depending on your recipe) to the container or mortar, then allow at least 20 minutes for the colour and flavour to infuse out. You can then leave it to infuse overnight in the fridge if you like.
