Corrales Azafrán

HB014

Carthamus tinctorius. Safflower from the village of Corrales, New Mexico.  Azafrán translates as "saffron." This unrelated red/orange thistle-like flower was used as a saffron substitute in the Spanish Colonies.  (Approximately 2 Tbsp. of dried Azafran petals equals a pinch of saffron) 

Keeps well as a dried flower, though flower calyxes are very prickly.
