First, pour water into a fireproof dish and put it on the flame to boil
When the water boils, lower the flame and add a little sugar or honey to dissolve.
When the sugar and honey are completely dissolved, pass it through a strainer and pour it back into the pot to boil.
When the syrup is slightly concentrated, it is saffron’s turn.
At this point, add a teaspoon of ground saffron to the solution.
Stir a little to make the syrup look completely yellow and saffron and the aroma is diffused.
After this, do not let the syrup boil. Pass it through a strainer and sip.

Some important and practical tips in cooking with saffron
Many people like to dilute the syrup at this time and entertain a large number of guests at their party. To do this, you can add cold water to it and test its sweetness. But adding sorrel and egg syrup can also make the concoction stronger and more balanced.
Some of our compatriots use only melted saffron to make saffron syrup and do not need to boil it. This syrup helps you set your party table faster, but usually to increase the properties of saffron and its effectiveness, you have to give it a temperature to give all its properties to the drink.
If you want to drink this drink only in the form of saffron and rose, and do not use water, the best way to prepare this concoction is to heat the rose and saffron before it gets too hot and then boils. Add it and remove from the oven.
The reason for this is that if the rose boils, it loses many of its properties.
