This one is even more baffling than cinnamon. "Well, John appears to have died after eating one. But there's just GOT to be a way to prepare those green squash testicles so we could all enjoy them."

And that's why saffron is so scary expensive. There are only two stamens per crocus, and they have to be carefully harvested by hand, one at a time.

The little green flower buds are the capers. The small unripe fruits are eaten too. In Dutch they are called 'caper-apples'.
