Just a quick post to let all of you paella fans out there know that Costco, yes COSTCO, has wonderful certified La Mancha Saffron in stock right now! It's a 5 gram bottle and goes for around $26. If you know anything about saffron, you know that this is a great deal! The threads are a dark red and are packaged in a glass bottle with purple cardboard surrounding it. It looks to be the real deal. Expiration is March 2010, so you've got some time to use it.
You can find this in the spice section. Now, go make some paella and let me know how it is!
