King James Version (KJV)

King James Bible KJV


"Heb. karkom, Arab. zafran (i.e., "yellow"), mentioned only in" "Cant. 4:13, 14; the Crocus sativus. Many species of the crocus" "are found in Palestine. The pistils and stigmata, from the" "centre of its flowers, are pressed into "saffron cakes," common" "in the East. "We found," says Tristram, "saffron a very useful" "condiment in travelling cookery, a very small pinch of it giving" not only a rich yellow colour but an agreable flavour to a dish "of rice or to an insipid stew."
