Substitute for Saffron?

Substitute the petals of pot marigolds for expensive saffron. They have a similar pungent flavor and the same yellow color. Let the flower heads air-dry or dry them in a microwave, then grind them into a fine powder with a mortar and pestle. Use in pastries, soups, risottos, etc., adding just a pinch more than you would use of saffron.
