How do you measure out saffron?
Is there a way to get use measuring spoons to measure saffron? I've used saffron many times before but usually just guess at it. I'm thinking about trying a recipe for a saffron semifreddo that looks like I might have to be more precise, and it calls for a 1/4 teaspoon of saffron. I might be dumb, but how do you 'spoon' out something that comes in threads? Is there a good way to estimate?
