From the flowers of the Crocus sativus, commonly known as the saffron crocus, comes the spice "saffron". Each plant of this variety of crocus has approximately 4 flowers and each flower has 3 stigma. It is this stigma which is painstakingly picked from the blossoms and dried to become the saffron that gives Risotto Milanese its exquisite golden color and its rich taste. If you do not happen to have Crocus sativus growing in your garden, you can purchase dried saffron online. Beware, it is quite expensive and needs to be stored in a glass jar wrapped in aluminum foil in a dark cabinet
