      Trader Joe's (a California chain I would probably pine away and wither
      without), sells saffron at about four bucks for a little jar, can't find mine now,
      so not sure of the weight. I don't cook with saffron much, so one of these
      lasts me ages. My old-neighborhood yuppie food mart sold it for about the same
      prices. I recall buying a couple ounces back when I was in grade school for a
      fabric-dying project.
