Is Saffron a colour or should it be Orange.
I was debating with a Friend that Saffron is a colour,as the Indian tricolour has it.Where its reffered to as Saffron & not Orange.
Or do both Exist,with a shade difference.

It's a herb used to flavour food and it's also a colour (yellow).

According to every woman on the planet:  yes 

According to every man: It's orange.

It's like Mauve? WTF is that? Red? Pink? Both?  confused  !

Can we just stick to the basics . . . .

It's also a spice by the by . . . expensive stuff too.

You get it for free when you buy good Basmati rice with a promotion. Actually, if you want some Pep, my parents have lots of it (sent from Iran), I am sure I could send you a bit when I am back in L.A. for the holidays.

It is quite excellent and I can get it at the military commissary for a reasonable cost . . . and in the rice of course.

But I'm always up for freebies . . .  biggrin .

If I cook some will you come visit ANC?

Actually, the girl and I have been talking about doing a trip to ANC. It is a good deal for the miles used and somewhere neither of us has been (I have been to JNU twice, she has never been to Alaska). If we do, you will definately be making us some salmon and halibut (and that's an order seargent)  bigthumbsup . We actually want to go to DUT for her 30th birthday (in 3.5 years) given that it is pretty much as close to the IDL as you can get so she can be in her 20s for the longest possible period. Luckily, her B-day is in the middle of July, so it might break 50 in the Aleutians  Silly.

The Cristo "gates" were orange shower curtains, not saffron. 

Saffron has a distinct yellow component, it's yellow-orange.

Here's a link to a list of colors at wikipedia:
